The new faces of Kurdish art rock Vice.com
Best defined as Cosmopolitan Kurdesque, ADIR JAN is a melting pot of Mid-Easterranean sounds and rhythms,
progressively combined with traditional, progressive pop, rock and psychedelic harmonies. Songs in Kurmanjî or other
languages – especially in the ancient Zaza – intensify Adir Jan’s sweet and spicy voice and compositions.
Singer-songwriter Adir Jan’s lyrics revolve mostly around gay love and passion, pleasure and pain, but also highlight critical social issues, such as war, homophobia and racism. His message is clear: universal love!
