A generation’s howling cries of pain, worry, and protest are exhibited through the arabesque classics on the album “Arabesk”.
Just the sound of the opening notes carries the listener back to a familiar time when those unforgettable arabesque songs were penned by the foremost lyricist of the day, Ali Tekintüre.
Over the past century, iconic voices such as Bergen, Müslüm Gürses, Orhan Gencebay and Ibrahim Tatlises have all put their own spin on Ali Tekintüre’s songs. Now, one of the most innovative, dynamic young rock bands brightening the landscape of Istanbul, Fairuz Derin Bulut come together to infuse their punk-reggae style of music with their arabesque heritage. Musical collaboration serves as a bridge between two different generations of performers, who come together to breathe new life into the genre to make it rocking and relevant for the 21st century listener.
