Upon finding he was to be sentenced to 5–15 years, he sought political asylum in Germany and has resided in Berlin since. Even though he was unable to perform in Turkey, as music critic Orhan Kahyaoğlu notes, Nizamettin Ariç's recordings have been influential on musicians in Turkey, especially Kardeş Türküler (who has covered several of his songs), and film/tv music arranger Aytekin Gazi Ataş. His movie A Song for Beko was one of the first films in the Kurdish language and has won 15 international awards. www.filmaffinity.com/en/film129699.html Read more on Last.fm.
