Funereal: Aynur Doğan and "Ehmedo"



Today's random tune is something that we've seen described as a Kurdish dirge. Ehmedo is performed by Aynur Doğan, a contemporary Kurdish singer and musician from Turkey. She has released six albums and was featured in the documentary Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul. The version of this song that we have comes from the soundtrack to the documentary (Crossing the Bridge, 2006), though this video is a version I hadn't heard before.
