Product Description:
This is the ninth volume in the impressive Love, Peace & Poetry compilation series, following America, latin America, Asia, UK, Japan, Brazil, Mexico and Africa. In Turkey, as the 1950s became the 1960s, just as in cities and towns across Britain and America, countless musical groups began to spring up as young people felt the pull of a growing youth movement. The music that would come from Turkey would blend European and Asian inAuences unique to that country and essential to the cuiú tural synthesis of Turkish folk and Western rock music that emerged in 1967ú1968. The great Delta blues players like Robert Johnson created music with one acoustic guitar in much the same way that traditional tiirkii arrangements were played originally on one saz (traditional Turkish instrument). As you listen here, if you consider the ways in which classic Delta blues songs were later given electric rock arrangements by musicians like John Mayall, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones and others you will have a fuller understanding of Turkish pop music of this era. Artists featured include: Mogollar (described as "Anadolu pop" or "Anatolian pop" - the essence of the ancient and mystical soul of Turkish folk music; known as the "Turkish Pink Floyd"); Selda (politically-themed music, a transformation of traditional Turkish folk music and poetry into more contemporary r?ck-based music similar to the transformation of traditional folk-blues in the West); Ozdemir Erdogan (well-known jazz guitarist, vocalist and arranger; his track was originally a wellknown tiirkii by Asik Veysel, one of the most revered Turkish folk poets); Erkin Koray (the most psychedelic Turkish rocker ever, made his best recordings between 1970 and 1974 - the song here was recorded in 1971 with his band, Erkin Koray Supergroup). Edip Akbayram (a tiirkii arranger and singer one of the last examples of the best Turkish rock music of the 1960s-1970s, as there was a definite shift away from those traditions after the beginning of the 1980s). !=em Karaca (another important rock singer known for his political stance); O~ Hiirel (Turkish rock group formed in 1970 by three brothers; unique for designing their own instruments: drums created from traditional Turkish percussion instruments, a double-necked stringed creation that had an electric saz on one half and an electric guitar on the other); Biilent Orta~gil (songwriter and singer who released his debut lP in1974, an album which has become a Turkish pop classic recently reissued on CD; Orta<;gil is unique because of the absence of Eastern inAuences in his music, sounding more Western as a result). As the smoke from the hookah rises around you and the intricate patterns in the finely-woven carpet open upon new worlds of meaning, breathe in the music deeply and enjoy.QDK MEDIA .2006
