Adir Jan’s first album Leyla is published by Trikont and Bgst Records and made its way quickly into the Transglobal World Music Charts. Adir Jan calls his music “Cosmopolitan Kurdesque”. “Kurdish music”, he says, “is my greatest influence, though I try to free myself from roots of any kind. The music of Adir Jan, a Kurdish singer-songwriter and saz player born in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin successfully brings together the diverse worlds of queer poetry, Kurdish folk, Sufi mysticism and psychedelic art rock in a music whose hypnotic rhythms bring together many different communities. Singer-songwriter Adir Jan’s lyrics revolve mostly around gay love and passion, pleasure and pain, but also highlight social issues, such as war, homophobia and racism. His message is clear: universal love!
