The Kurdish Globe - - WEATHER/ NEWS -

The Kur­dish folk singer and pain­ter from the Ira­nian Kur­dis­tan, Abass Ka­mandi, passed away at the age of 62 in the Kur­dish city of Sina last Thurs­day.

Ka­mandi, who was suf­fer­ing from blood cancer for many years, was trans­ferred to Ba’asat Hospi­tal in Sina on Wed­nes­day night as his health con­di­tion de­te­ri­o­rated. He spent the night at the hospi­tal un­der in­ten­sive care, but died the fol­low­ing morn­ing.

Ka­mandi’s corpse was trans­ferred to Mala Waisi Mosque in the city in or­der to be washed and be pre­pared for burial. Ka­mandi was buried in Ba­hashty Mo­hammedi Grave­yard in a cer­e­mony, in which many people, mostly Kur­dish artists from var­i­ous cities and re­gions of the Great Kur­dis­tan, at­tended.

The fu­neral ser­vice was ar­ranged the same day at around 4:00 p.m. in the pres­ence of his rel­a­tives and fans.

For Ka­mandi the Sina city was like the cra­dle of his love and in­spi­ra­tion, and he al­ways be­lieved that no place in the world is as pretty as Sina. He said many times on dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions: “I came into this world in Sina, and will leave this world from Sina.” Last Thurs­day Ka­mandi did ex­actly what he said.
