• New Album 'Cîhana Hêşîn' Released



Rohat Ciwan

is a Kurdish singer/songwriter. He sings and writes his lyrics in his Kurdish mother tongues (Kurmanci, Zazaki, Sorani) and arranges the songs sometimes only with guitar accompaniment, sometimes with many instruments. Musically, the singer, who comes from the Kurdish town of Mardin and has been living in Germany since 2005, moves between Mesopotamian music tradition, handmade pop music, folkrock and European singer/songwriter influences. In his pieces he negotiates the political, the interpersonal and the everyday. Recurring themes are the suppression of Kurdish culture, the fate of the homeless Kurdish people, but also personal experiences and interpersonal encounters.
