Kurdish Hospitality


Kurdish refugees brought many cultural traditions with them to Nashville.  For Kurds, entertaining guests in the home is considered an honor for the host and it is normal to welcome unannounced guests at any time.  Many Kurds in Nashville consider guests to be family and will postpone any previous plans once a guest knocks at the door.  Join NPT’s Linda Wei as she experiences Kurdish hospitality in Nashville first hand at the home of Sarkawt Mirza.
