“To hear Aynur’s voice is to hear the transformation of all the layers of human joy and suffering into one sound. It reaches so deep into our soul, tears into our hearts, and then we are for one moment, joined as one. It is unforgettable.”
Yo-Yo Ma

Aynur is one of the most prominent Kurdish singers of our times. Her impressive voice and extraordinary musical narration represent the Kurdish music heritage of her cultural roots as a global genre. Her unique voice infuses traditional Kurdish folk music with the contemporary sensibility of Western music. Her albums are praised not just in Turkish media but also in international media. She is one of the best sellers with her albums among Kurdish folk albums that were released by Sony Music Classical and Harmonia Mundi Latitute.

Aynur's success allowed her to collaborate in fellowship with a wide range of acclaimed artists including world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, Kayhan Kalhor, Javier Limón, Kinan Azmeh, the Nederland Blazers Ensemble, the NDR Big Band and many more. She appears in one of the most remarkable scenes of Fatih Akın’s documentary “ Crossing the Bridge / The Sound of Istanbul ” and is part of Morgan Neville's documentary about Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, "The Music of Strangers”.

In 2017 Aynur received the "Master of Mediterranean Music" Award in the category of “Mediterranean Women in Action” from the Berklee Mediterranean Music Institute, Berklee College of Music. This award recognised Aynur’s efforts to preserve and reinterpret Kurdish folk music, which has transformed her into an influential role model for other women artists on the Mediterranean music scene who are seeking to share their voices.
Aynur has just gave two unforgettable concerts with Maestro Riccardo Muti’s Roads Of Friendship project on the 3rd and 5th of July 2020 at Ravenna Festival / Italy in ancient Greek Temples.
Her latest release HEDÛR / Solace Of Time that was topped number #1 on TWMC and cover feature of Songlines Aug /Sept 2020 issue, the adventure of the album will lead her to Carnegie Hall in May 7, 2021.
