I found a beautiful site akaKurdistan  while researching 1930’s Persia late one night and was charmed by the adventure: cross-culture multi-culture overlapping stories – these that are so deeply embedded in my imagination.

'When, after the tragic death of my father, the Emir,
I fled from my revolt-stricken country,
dancing became my very reason for living, my life's aim.'

 Leila Bedirkhan.
