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 Zaza, Kurmanjî,
Turkish and other languages 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:
ADIRJAM has ranked in the “Top 20 Indie Artists in Middle
Eastern Music” since December 2014. Covered on VICE.com
as “The new faces of Kurdish art rock”, ADIR JAN plays at
Berlin hotspots all over town, from Südblock to the legendary
concert hall Huxley’s Neue Welt, from university campus gigs
to open-air summer festivals such as the Fusion Festival.
Since 2019 his first album "Leyla" is published by Trikont and bgst records.
