Nusaybin Youth Choir (NBYC)


Formed in June 2018, Nusaybin Youth Choir (NBYC) consists of a group of talented young residents of the city of Nusaybin, located in Turkey on the Syrian border. NBYC is led and directed by Iranian-American composer and Sirkhane’s Music Director, Sahba Aminikia a few months before the first Flying Carpet Music Festival. During the festival the choir had the chance to collaborate with composers such as Aleksandra Vrebalov (Serbia/United States) and Luciano Chessa (Italy/United States) and performed at several venues across the region. NBYC will continue to exist and work as part of “Muzikhane” and will continue to collaborate with international artists, musicians and composers.
