Şeyda was born in Syria in the city of Al-Hasakah. He had a cruel childhood away from everything and was deprived of his mother tongue, the Kurdish language. Since he was a kid he loved music and started singing as well, he was very good in singing even his neighbors used to ask him to sing for them. He studied until the twelfth grade, and then decided to pursue music professionally. Currently, he holds a degree in music from an institute in Aleppo.
Initially, Şeyda sang on small occasions, and his dream seemed to grow when he started singing in concerts. With hard work and passion for music he released his first album in 2004 entitled “José Asmar“, in addition to that he has 3 more albums and an duet with Dilber titled “Tunisian”. He held many concerts in Iraqi Kurdistan, Russia in 2009 and Germany in 2010.
All of Şeyda songs speak of love, homeland, pain and alienation. He is one of the first person to introduce Western music into Kurdish music and integrate it in a new and professional way.
Due to insecurity in Syria and after the government arrested him more than once in his city, he decided to leave his country in 2014 and was deported to Germany. In Germany, everything changed and he enjoyed complete freedom to sing, freedom and innovation without accountability or fear. He soon learned German and produced more than one song to become an artist with a large audience in Europe and the Middle East.
