AllMusic Review by

Though they are spread across several Middle Eastern countries, the Kurds are very much a cultural entity and their music a recognizable subset of the general regional idiom, with strong links to Persian tradition and a particular liking for the Dorian mode. The Kurds are also traditionally nomadic: they have relied largely on shepherd's pipes and the human voice (though they have adopted stringed instruments from their neighbors over time).
