Turkish Time

On Saturday night me and Mr F tootled off to see Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek play live. Very good they were too, you should check them out if they are round your way. Derya and the gang are touring at the moment to promote their new album "DOST 1", available at an absolute bargain price of only €7 at Bandcamp

We've got a track from their previous album "Kar Yağar" (2019) for you, together with tunes from a couple of other Turkish acts who I have been lucky enough to see live over the years. We round things off with videos from some of the giants of Anatolian rock, some of whom featured in an excellent set by the support DJ om Saturday night.

"Gurbet" - Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek

"Yaz Gazeteci Yaz" - Selda Bagcan

"Özgür Ruh" - Baba Zula

Derya has had her hair cut since this video was taken but appears to be wearing the same shirt. Maybe its her lucky gigging shirt.
