Biography

Born Aynur Doğan in 1975 in Çemisgezek, in the province of Tunceli in Turkey, she attended the ASM Music School in Istanbul, where she studied singing with Begüm Erdem and Aşkın Metiner. In 2002, her first album, Seyir, was released. Besides taking part in concerts and albums of artists and groups such as Metin-Kemal Kahraman, Mikail Aslan, Grup Yorum, Orient Expressions, Lütfü Gültekin and Anjelika Akbar, she has also performed the vocals for television and cinema. She has performed at home and abroad in Kurdish but also in Turkish. Her album “Keça Kurdan” (“Kurdish Girl”) was released by Kalan Music in 2004.

The product of nearly a year’s effort, with arrangements by such master musicians as Aykut Gürel, Serdar Ateşer, Kemal Sahir Gürel and Burhan Bayar, Aynur’s Keçe Kurdan album presented a combination of Kurdish and Turkish folk songs, as well as new compositions. Accompanied by a host of fine musicians, the album was notable for its original arrangements. With her broad vocal range, Aynur performs both folk songs and improvisations, and her album has proved capable of deepiy moving audiences.

Rising quickly to the top of Kurdish music albums, “Keça Kurdan” has received a significant amount of attention, both in the Turkish and World press. The English magazine “Folk Roots” (“fRoots”) featured the albüm on the cover of their November 2004 issue. The article “A Kurd on the Way” gave an account of Aynur’s success and information on her past. Comparing her to Turkey’s Sezen Aksu and Greece’s Ελευθερία Αρβανιτάκη, it declared Aynur a major star for all Kurds. Aynur’s photo was also on the cover of a suppliement in the “The Times” on 21st March 2005 - issue: “The Cultural Wealth of Turkey”.

    July 2011 in Istanbul: Aynur Doğan received protests from the audience at a jazz concert for singing in . Aynur: “I am very sad that these things still happen in Turkey.” -“In all festivals I participate in I sing in Kurdish, but am invited as a singer from Turkey,” she said. “The concert Friday hosted Greek, Spanish and Ladino songs but some people couldn’t bear hearing the language of a nation they have been living together with for hundreds of years.” Read more here: www.hurriyetdailynews.com/n.php?n=anti-kurdish-protest-breaks-out-at-istanbul-jazz-concert-2011-07-17

    So, we decided neither of the pages or names are wrong. They are both correct, and/but the other page has FLPs for you to enjoy. Till we find a better solution for different versions of artist names, both will be up. Wiki and pics replaced. Happy scrobbling!

    We are looking into it, it's not a mistake done by Jester-NL, it's like this because Aynur Doğan has official FLP tracks.

    It's another case of Jester-NL making a mistake and protecting it against correction by those who know more about the matter.

    Who has removed the biography, and why can't we replace it?

    Why has this a red logo? Aynur is the name she uses, not Aynur Doğan.
