Mohammed Sufkhan at the Record Room

Off the back of the release of his incredible debut album, I Am Kurdish, Mohammed Sufkhan has announced a show at the Record Room.

The Kurdish/Syrian singer and bouzouki player, whose beatific craft has won him a legion of new fans in recent times, will play an intimate show at the Limerick venue, based in the Commerical, on Thursday, 28th March.

Currently based in Leitrim, Sufkhan relocated to Ireland in late 2016 and has spent the last seven years largely playing at private parties and concerts in the community, as well as weddings and events for Kurdish and Syrian communities in Ireland and Germany. As well as collaborating with such Irish artists as Martin Hayes, Cormac Begley, Eimear Reidy, Cathal Roche and Vincent Woods, he played a breathtaking set, opening for Lankum at the Cork Opera House last summer.

This is an unmissable opportunity to catch a vital artist at the peak of his powers. Buy tickets for the show here and Stream I Am Kurdish via Nyahhh Records below. Consider buying it here, too.
