Awaz

About

Awaz is a Kurdish musician from the Middle East. He plays traditional Kurdish music on the Baglama and the Kaval. Awaz came to Australia in early 2012 and was a member of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre. He composed and performed with Sophia Brous on the Key of Sea Volume 2 and his performance on that record is the first time he has been at liberty to sing in his original tongue.
