The group is under the direction of composer-musician-teacher Nevzat Akpinar, who was born in 1968 in Sivas, Central Anatolia, and moved to Berlin, Germany in 1980.
This concert by the Nevzat Akpinar Ensemble, a group of Turkish and Kurdish musicians who now make their home in Berlin, is an opportunity to explore the musical and cultural wealth of the Alevi community, a small minority within Turkey and Islam itself.
