The trio Li Dinê consists of three members (Gara Sazkar, Rewan Riko and Samuel B. Sindi).
They mix eastern and western music traditions. Taking root in middle-eastern (Kurdish) folk music, they mix oriental rhythms with scales and melodies, musical compositions with hip hop lyrical flow and modern R'n'B productions with elements of house and rock.
This has led to a whole new genre called Hemereng. Hemereng is an ancient Kurdish lyrical expression meaning a combination of all colors. Li Dinê has revived the phrase and given it a musical meaning. With this new type of music, Li Dinê takes us on a journey with their interpretation of Kurdish folklore and tales that have been passed down through generations.
Li Dinê means "world, here we come". In Li Dinê two generations of musicians have come together. Gara Sazkar is a veteran on the Kurdish music scene, while composer Rewan Riko and writer Samuel B. Sindi are younger. Tradition meets contemporary music. East meets west.
Li Dinê´s first single is called "Were Were Yare". They produced and wrote it themselves. The music video was produced by Frontier Adaptor, and has received great airplay, especially in the Middle East.
