http://landofkarda.blogspot.com/ Hesen Zirek (also spelled: Hasan Zirak) (1921-1972) was a great Kurdish singer and musician. He was born in Hermêle, a small village around Bukan in Eastern Kurdistan. He showed his talent for singing in his early age. His title ''Zirek'' literally in Kurdish means: one who got a clear and pure warbling voice (from the root ''zire'' and ''zirandin''); the name ''Ziryab'' too shares the same root. In 1953, he left for Iraqi Kurdistan and recorded a great number of songs in Kurdish for the Kurdish section of the Baghdad broadcasting station. In 1957, when he returned to Iranian Kurdistan for cooperation with music band of the Kurdish radio station in Kermanshah, he recorded many Kurdish songs. Hassan Zirek died from cancer at age 51 in June 26, 1972 and was buried around his native city Bukan, on Nalishkêne mountain one of the most famous mountains of the region which lies close to the city. He is and will remain one of the most popular and well known singers in Kurdistan...
