Turkey is a land where Europe meets Asia, and where the music and culture is shaped by influences from virtually every direction. In the cities, discos and record stores blast the latest pop hits from the likes of Ebru G√É¬ºndes, while evocative bellydance music is ready to captivate the innocent passer-by. If you turn the corner, you might find a trendy saz club, religious music or run into a Rom (Gypsy) neighbourhood and its famous all-night musical taverns. This album provides an insight into the vast array of music within Turkey, encompassing some of the country's most talented and celebrated artists.
'A rapid musical gallop around most Turkish bases.' Songlines
