The dengbêj is the member of Kurdish society who collects and recollects all the social, political, economical, and personal events of Kurdish villages and cities and organizes these all into a form of recitation. The topics of a dengbêj’s kilams (songs), which can last from hours to days, generally include: the heroic deeds of warriors (pêlewan), the adventures of wanderers, battles, tragedies and delights of loves won and loves lost, and the struggle against disasters of nature and man.
