We remember Karapete Xaco

Karapete Xaco was an talented Armenian man and the best Kurdish singer in Armenia, this great man is no longer with us and died by age, in the year of 2005.

Karapete Xaco was born 1902 during the genocide and lived until he died in 2005 in the age of 103 years old (!). Xaco lost his whole in the genocide in 1915, he was raised an rescued by a kurdish family.
This makes Mr Xaco the most famous and oldest Kurdish singing Armenian in history.
During his life Karapete sang songs like Ay lo miro, Adulle, Cume Cizire, Ximxime tore Vana and Le daye.



Kurdistan and Hayastan´s tribute to Karpete Xaco
In the year of 1946 the Xaco family moved to the Armenian capital Yerevan, there he began to sing in the Kurdish Service of Yerevan Radio in 1955 where he also worked. He died in Yerevan.

One of Mr Xaco´s five children, Seyrop Xaco, said on his fathers funural:

although my father was an Armenian origin, he felt closer to the Kurds and for this reason he served Kurdish music as a dengb├¬j (singer). He always deeply felt the grief and sorrow of the Kurdish people who have long suffered at least as much as Armenian people and wanted to express this pain with Kurdish kilams (songs)”

We will never forget one of the main bridges between the Armenian and Kurdish culture.

First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had
a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!
