You are going to listen 3 very well known -here- old Turkish tunes. You will see lots of classical Turkish instruments, as well as some other well known ones, professional and mostly amateur artists

Again, its nice to be here Starting tomorrow, I will post one tune per day. I hope you enjoy these.

Enjoy Good night. (for me )

Thank you I'm glad that you like it. Today's artist is Tarkan. He's a Turkish pop artist, and he's well known in some other countries. I'll add 3 songs of him, first two are new songs from his latest albums, and the last one is a relatively older, very vell known song

First song is called 'Öp', means 'Kiss'.





Second one is called 'Ask Gitti Bizden', means 'Love is gone from us' or maybe 'Love left us'.





And the last one is an older song of him, called 'Dudu'. I don't know the exact meaning of the word, it's not very common but here, I can tell that it's used as 'nice', 'good' or something like that. Okay lets go for the song

Some days I can't post here, so today I'm here again with 3 songs First 2 of them are from a pop artist called 'Yalin'. He has a softer style and voice, usually emotional lyrics, and has lots of fans here. Not one of my personal favorites but, he's worth listening. And the third one is a work of an alternative group called 'Manga', and a female pop artist 'Goksel'. I think this one is a nice song


Yalin - 'Kasma', means something like 'take it easy'. Enjoy





Yalin - 'Keske', means 'I wish'.





Manga / Goksel - 'Dursun Zaman', means like 'let the time stop' or something.





Hope you enjoy them

Here's a bonus for you

Performed by Selim Sesler, a Turkish Romani/gypsy from Kesan/Edirne, the ancient 'Thrace', land of the Spartacus He's one of the best clarinet artists in Turkey, actually his works are widely known in Europe and some parts of the world.

And here is that fine and delicate piece of Turkish Romani/gypsy culture, by Selim Sesler, his orchestra, and Brenna MacCrimmon, who is a Canadian folk singer from Toronto, Ontario, who has been performing, studying and teaching Balkan and Turkish music since the late 1980s. If I'm not wrong, she plays the 'baglama' in this song.

Enjoy

Thank you I'm glad to hear that you like
You can always tell me what style you want to hear, old or new, and also you can ask any questions about the songs, culture, instruments etc.

I haven't been able to post for some time because of some business trips. Today I'll post three songs

First one is a video from a movie called 'Crossing the Bridge'. In this scene, Brenna MacCrimmon, a Canadian folk singer, is singing a Turkish song with 'Baba Zula', a Turkish alternative band that produces some folk, alternative and kinda psychadelic music using modern and old instruments, and also some ancient Turkish accessories This song is a different version of a Turkish sad folk song.
Here you go





The second song is in English, performed by Sertab Erener, a former Turkish Eurovision contestant. It's a pop song, and it was one of her candidate songs for Eurovision. You can see some Turkish ancient cultural elements in the video of the song.
Enjoy





And the last one, one of my favorites. This is from a concert of Sebnem Ferah, she's a rock artist, and this song does not sound like her usual style, very different and interesting. There's also an orchestra playing at the concert. Name of the song is Sil Bastan', means something like 'Start over'. She has a nice voice Enjoy






I hope you like them
Cheers

Hello people Today, first, you'll hear some delicious clarinet again. Clarinet has a very important place in most ethnic Turkish music, especially in Northwestern Turkish culture.

I'll post 2 songs of an artist called 'Kirpi', means 'Porcupine' He produces mostly ethnic/electronic music, and he plays the clarinet.

I truly love his works. Both of these tracks that I'm going to post are in Buddha Bar compilations, and Kirpi is a well known artist in some countries other than Turkey. Actually he's known by more people out of Turkey

First song is called 'The Song'. Enjoy





And the second song is called 'My Name is Kirpi'





Hope you like them
Peace

And today, I'm going to post 2 more songs, because I won't be able to be online in 1-2 days

First artist is 'Ayse Hatun Onal'. She used to be an actress and model, later she started to sing, and she released some nice electronica tunes

Name of the song is 'Kalbe Ben'. Exact translation is hard, because this is half a sentence so it is something like 'Me to your heart'





And next song is from a hip-hop artist, 'Ege Cubukcu'.
Name of the song is 'Party Istanbul'





Cheers

Hi, simpleman !
Maybe you don`t get many comments in this thread, but so far you have received 390 "views", so plenty of people are checking out the songs you`re posting. I haven`t listened to them all, but I thought you might like to hear someone`s opinion about a few of the artists you have chosen :-

post 21: Kirpi : I would`ve liked it more without the electronic beats.

post 15: Tarkan : Thanks to MTV, this song became quite popular in Mexico:



It`s clever the way the hook in this song is the international sound, so that anyone in the world can join in for those few seconds at least.

post 20: Crossing The Bridge : I guess this is rather diluted Turkish music, but I enjoyed it anyway.

post 17: Selim Sesler : A great track ; I have a cd of Romanian Gypsy music, but this guy is much better.

post 22: Kalbe Ben : This sounded special to me, but maybe that was because of the video.

post 13: Play For Nature : This one is easily my favourite so far. I love the way it celebrates ordinary Turkish people, shows us some everday glimpses of Turkey and has a gentle start. But then, at about 2:20, it starts to change and just gets stronger and stronger until the end. Wonderful !

Thanks again for posting some very interesting music !
