Post a Comment. Total Pageviews. Powered by Blogger Tricks. Erkin Koray on spotify. Erkin Koray on dezeer. To sit across from John Lennon, one of the leading celebrities of the most famous Beatles Group was a dream come true for him. Lennon was quite surprised to learn that the young man with the long hair sitting across from İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler was a Turkish musician. I think it should suffice to say that I felt them. What counts in Turkey is music. To top it off, most of his best records included placing his expressively sonorous vocals centre stage as if to buffer his many axe attacks, which only made for a highly incongruous and intriguing mix of emotional shading oftentimes completely at odds with itself.
Truly, Baba Erkin jerks mah gherkin every time. And incredibly, Koray Tin Pan Alley - Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble - Texas Medicine continues to record and perform to the present day.
We all know East is east and west is west. But did you know Turkey is both? And also An Orient by İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler other name would be no Occident. Or is it the other way round? Or both? Roughly İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler size of Texas, Turkey is a country whose natural geography defines it as a massive land bridge between two continents.
Stretching from the Mediterranean coastline into the Anatolian plains and the mountainous regions that lay to the east, this land played host for thousands of years of human migration and settlement dating back to the Paleolithic Age on up through a bewildering number of successive cultural layers that ebbed and flowed with Hittites, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Turkomen, Sky Turks, Seljuk Turks, Mongols and finally, Ottoman Turks to name but a few each conferring in turn their own individual influences upon the inhabitants of this continually re-conquered region.
And for the next fifteen years of his rule as first president of Turkey, an incredible amount of sweeping reforms were introduced that would dramatically transform life within the newly formed nation. Determined to bring Turkey forward as a modernised Western country through assiduous redefinitions of national identity, these reforms included adopting Western styles of clothing, the Metric system, the Western calendar İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler even the Roman alphabet was adopted in place of once-used Arabic script.
Activities of religious sects were banned and religious attire of every kind was prohibited in public as a secular system of jurisprudence was set up to replace the İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler religious laws of the Ottoman Empire.
But despite the severity of these measures, progressive steps were also made: amongst them rising literacy rates and the granting of social and political rights to women, as well as their right to run in parliamentary elections.
Forty years on, the embracing of all things Western was still going strong in Turkey. Ever since he had finished his compulsory two-year military service in spending it as a guitarist in the Air Force Jazz Band Koray had grown out his hair, which with each passing year had increased in length to perilous consequence: his outward appearance caused several separate knife attacks on his person on the streets of Istanbul.
Koray packed a knife for defence, let his stab wounds heal, continued to grow his hair and rocked on. A year prior to his Altin Mikrofon triumph, Koray had signed with Istanbul Records, for whom he would subsequently record İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler singles between the years of By the fifties, sizeable migrations from rural to urban areas had created a culture of disaffection, and arabesk music was its soundtrack.
Arabesk was a reaction to this abrupt cultural alignment with the West, and it described a social reality of the migrant folk who felt like outsiders in their own land as nostalgia, fatalism, frustration and resentment all took form in arabesk music alongside recurrent themes of city alienation.
InKoray signed with Dogan Records and it was here where he was able to finally present his artistic statement in a form that was contemporary, under his control and unrestricted by the abbreviated length of singles. Koray recorded three of his own original Rock instrumentals alongside five remaining tracks that were all versions of Anatolian folk songs ranging in vintage İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler years to centuries.
Koray did the arrangements and was able to unify all eight songs into a seamless trip where past and present, east and west, acoustic and electric all merged together effortlessly. He was also laughing when he was discharged as vocalist. Sedat was always motivated, successful, full of good intentions and an old friend. Ahmet and I fit very well in the corners of the rhythms that İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler structured.
Should we start it all over again? Our lovely girl Meftun prepared our teas, brought our fruit juices, and made every effort for us. She was a blue angel representing all goodness when we tried to lift a 25 kilogram Adrie Oosterling - 20 Jaar. His cheeks were a little bit red We suffered from thirst that day In the meantime, Doruk Onatkut provided us with the required environment, in addition to taking care of the recording in a very delicate and successful manner by giving examples of the modern world.
In sum, it was a nice and productive work For several cycling verses they court a young lady as all three wander through foothills, place a flower behind her ear and then chase each other down by the seaside, ahhh Koray freaks out on the organ in-between yelps and panting in terror until finally and with harried relief jerks awake to find himself back in his Istanbul pad.
Taking its title from a Turkish film, piano and bass buoyantly carry the melody from wharf side out into the open sea and past the promontories of care. By the end, Koray just drops off his vocal and is content to wedge in a glowing guitar solo that tears off and into the remainder of the track. With an opening flourish of reeds and drums the band then breaks down to allow Koray his sole baglama spot to establish the main theme. The reeds come in and weave once more and the band is propelling itself steadily faster İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler Dervish-like rotary-ness.
But the high pitched woodwind continues even sweeter than before, picking itself up from the broken glass to charm back the vibe and the band Slave - Rolling Stones* - MP3 - Part 2 at a pace even Fallen Apart - Misereality - E.P. and more muscular than before.
And on this album, Koray successfully synthesised it all into one. The Seth Man Head Heritage His musical style is pretty simple but is filled with ethnicity, tribalism, and fusion of Western and Islamic essence. This Middle East-West mixture is well done and splendidly matured, that should be his originality and mystic, energetic fuel for his career itself.
Featuring beautiful sitar sounds, surrealistic percussion, and smooth, melodious, humane voices. I've already listened to the eponymous album by a Turkish suprapsych combo Bunalim launched inand felt just like I had got drenched in mysterious texture with some definite familiarity His rhythmic part is quite simple and exciting or danceable but melody lines are too innovative and impressive for me a Japanese to help getting addicted completely.
Every tone and musical note should absorb me in another dimensional sense cannot realize in an apparent manner really İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler. Turkey is active and aggressive for various cultural issues between Europe and Asia, and their powerful humanity might have produced such an addiction. Suppose this style be popular around Turkey? Maybe yes. Electric guitar fuzz from the beginning until the last masterpiece "T'rk'" sounds not declined but musically rich.
Pretty fantastic and fanatic is hotchpotched and orientally flooded soundscape with cool wind instrumental bullets in "T'rk'", that might mention all of his elements I imagine. Sorta passion The beginning of the s. The most "sincere" period of the last century, as psychologically perhaps, the most complicated but complex.
The "counter-revolution" movement, which started in the United States in the 60s, is now continuing, albeit with some pessimism, and the spreading of the ocean to the opposite shores is complete. As in every decade, the world is in search again and our country is taking more than its share in its share.
Whether you have migrated from the village to the city, or have grown up, you have a mass of people who feel like a lost stranger in their own country, Istanbul. And just as it is in Imagination - Percy Faith - Its So Peaceful In The Country crisis, the only thing that is sought here is a familiar face from the old, a voice that is known.
It is no longer possible to see this hereditary culture of Anatolia from the bosom of the tongue and from the bifurcation.
Let's focus on the main subject before we go deeper and disperse in the technical details, "But Orhan Gencebay arabeskki!!! Erkin Koray, who has been publishing 45s sincemakes this strange debut inbut he is not very satisfied with the fact that it is almost always an old work in the album and does not reflect the new trends we mentioned in the upper paragraphs, and there are other plans for the new album.
Of course, with the slogan "Iii-eyy songs, it's in the album! Ahmet Guvenc bass, who will be the first to hit the ear and will not let go of the song during the album, let alone the wonderful arrangement of the songs, certainly but surely in each song, will not hesitate to "duck, duck, duck, bump, dubbuddibi" all right reserved. Omar Faruk Tekbilek's exquisite connection with what he has stolen in his 20s, and what a crazy zurna solo, a guitar that puts Erkin Koray's man into a transa give that rythm ear that is inserted behind the ney solos that enter at It is a pure musical journey, "to give way to the king" as it is today.
If I look a little too culturally, I think such albums, hele, are İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler more important than ever. In the documentary of Fatih Akin's Crossing Серцепело - Various - В Ожидании Чуда. Original Soundtrack (Hybrid, Album) Bridge, if we were not mistaken, Replikas had a saying like "We are here and we are doing the music of this place".
At first glance, it seems to me as a "restrictive" or even "nationalist" statement, but in fact a door that can show a necessary point behind it is for me. Music is universal yes, but first it is born from somewhere, it has to be born. And they carry unique things everywhere they are born.
You do not have to İnat - Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler it, you do not have to value it, but the learner, being aware of your existence, will be an important step towards becoming more equipped and "universal" in the future, even if it is an elitist kind.
To summarize, it is possible to say that Anatolian Rock, which is labeled as an irrepressible and irreversible track, has been given the equal right of both Anatolian and rock parts, and it still seems to me like a that Erkin Koray has disappeared after saying "arabesktiren poptur" Listen to the album. If he is in Sin Saber Que Decir - Ariel Rot - En Vivo Mucho Mejor, he will take you to the required places.
It's something I do not like at the end of Innocent / Alex 9000 / Innocent II - Alexander ONeal - Greatest Hits song, a poem quote, but it does not seem to be a better closure, a promise, because it feels like a forgotten CCC in Liverpool ovens because it feels like it Konuk Yazar.
