Tara has embraced this instrument and has introduced it to Kurdish music, and in particular to folk songs in the Hawrami dialect. She has developed an innovative style to adapt to the various musical rhythms and modes of the region, bringing a contemporary expression to an ancient form of song and music. Tara has been living in the United Kingdom since 1976 and has performed widely in concerts, festivals, conferences and galleries mainly as a solo artist and has featured regularly in radio and television in several countries. Her occasional collaborations have been with a wide range of artists; musicians, singers, poets, storytellers and painters.
