Baba Zula is a Turkish musical group, founded in
in 1996, my first contact with Baba Zula’s music was in a movie from Fatih Akin's, Crossing the Bridge. Istanbul
Founding members are Levent Akman and Murat Ertel, Coşar Kamçı, who replaced original member Emre Onel in 2005.
Baba Zula added live drawing artist Ceren Oykut into the mix in 2004. She left the band in 2010. Her presence on stage had added an important visual aspect to Baba Zula's live performances.
Akman, Ertel, and Onel originally formed Baba Zula as a side project of now disbanded Anatolian rock group Zen.
Baba Zula creates their own sound called "Oriental Dub", by mixing oriental instruments such as the darbuka, electric saş, and spoons with electronics and modern sounds.
While a ney can represent the past Sufi-Islamic tradition, and a clarinet is the symbol of the music of the Turkish gypsies, an electric saş together with a wooden spoon can serve as a musical compass to Turkish musical roots going as far back as pre-Islamic, shamanic times, through
Anatolia reaches all the way up to present-day . Istanbul
The first of two sets is called Ilk denemem or first attempt, I hope you will be able to built some affinity to this kind of music, it takes time, several hearings to came behind how genial this musicians really are.
So take your time and enjoy it….
