PERFORMERS from the mountains of central Asia have staged the first three-day Kurdish festival in the City of London.

They played Sufi and experimental music at St Ethelberger’s peace centre in Bishopsgate to promote Kurdistan arts and culture in Britain.

Organiser Della Murad said: “The festival gave the visitors the full picture of what Kurdish art and culture is all about.

“All the performers are now living in Britain, but were all born in Kurdistan.”

Nearly 500 visitors from all over the UK packed the three days of festivities which ended on Sunday, featuring art, music dance and poetry.
