“We thank Sulaymaniyah city for inviting us to present our artistic event on this National Day to introduce the Kurdish people to our Indian folk culture, and to establish a bridge of communication between the Indian and Kurdish cultures, to introduce the two peoples to the authenticity of cultures and civilizations between countries. In their performances, the artistic teams used old costumes and tools that modern generations are still preserving them.”
