Mohammad Syfkhan’s I Am Kurdish is a triumphant exaltation, an album brimming with love and beauty. It is joy and pain sounded out as an ecstatic fusion of Middle Eastern and African influence, with arrangements old and new seamed through with brilliant bouzouki playing, passionate vocals, untraditional twists and possessed of a rare authenticity of spirit.

Released on Valentines Day this year, through Nyahh Records, the album has garnered acclaim from The Quietus, The Guardian, and our humble selves.

The Syrian-born, Leitrim-based Syfkhan celebrates the launch on  March 29th in Bello Bar, through Enthusiastic Eunuch, one of Dublin’s champions of strange, brilliant music.

Tickets are recommended, as many new fans, as well as most of Ireland’s bustling music community, are sure to be in attendance.
