“Istanbul Calling” is a unique collection of ethnic-electronic
songs from Istanbul. The first album was on Turkish sales charts
for more than 36 weeks. In "Istanbul Calling Vol.2", fusion music
producer Oguz Kaplangi collects colorful tracks again.
Although the album is a compilation, it is comprised of songs
that have never been released before. With this album, Istanbul’s
underground ethnic-electronic music finds a chance to be
known both nationally and internationally.
The special Istanbul photos in the CD booklet in Vol. 1 were
taken by Çetin Hafizoglu, Ümit Karahan and Selim Demirdelen.
In Vol. 2, world famous photographer Ara Güler's photographs
of Istansbul will be used.
Radios, broadcasting world music in Europe and America are
regularly playing songs from “Istanbul Calling” and the album is
receiving very good criticism.
