On Sunday, the three-year anniversary of the Rojava Orchestra was celebrated with a concert in the northern Syrian city of Qamishlo.
The musical performance took place in the concert hall of the cultural center named after Kurdish folk singer Mihemed Şêxo (1948-1989), which is run by the Committee for Culture and Art of the Cizire region. In addition to members of the institution, the audience included representatives of the local artists' association and the Education Committee, representatives of political parties and civil society, as well as numerous residents of the city. After a minute of silence in memory of the martyrs of the Rojava revolution, the performance of the orchestra began.
The Rojava Orchestra is the first top ensemble of its kind in northern and eastern Syria. It was founded on September 24, 2016 by the Committee for Art and Culture, which continues to support and lead the orchestra. Since the founding of the ensemble, a subordinate committee has provided the instruments for the training of young musicians. The Rojava Orchestra also offers singers a lasting perspective for their musical passion and performs important artistic work to represent North and East Syria permanently.
