Described as Turkey's most beloved alternative music purveyors Baba Zula create a unique psychedelic sound, combining Traditional Turkish instruments, electronica, reggae and dub.
The core of their sound is the saz, a Turkish bouzouki like stringed instrument with a bright, high-pitched sound.

In 2005 Baba Zula was exposed to a wider international audience when they were featured in a documentary, Crossing the Bridge by Fatih Akin, which took an in-depth look at Istanbul's contemporary and avant-garde music scene.
