Lenka Zupkova and Ibrahim Keivo have been playing together as a duo since 2016, improvising and interpreting various folk or traditional songs from the cultural sphere of Syria, Armenia, Turkey.

Al Jazira, the region in north-eastern Syria characterised by enormous ethnic and religious diversity, is the home of singer and instrumentalist Ibrahim Keivo. For years, Keivo has been "collecting" the songs of the region: songs about love, joy, mourning, harvest. Wedding songs, ritual songs, myths. Keivo sings in Arabic in various dialects, Kurdish, Aramaic, Assyrian and Armenian and accompanies himself on saz.
