Location: Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre, SOAS University of London

An evening of Anatolian & Alevi music and storytelling with the talented Making Tracks alumni Ozan Baysal and his band.


Anatolian Groove is led by Turkish bağlama player Ozan Baysal, who specialises in traditional şelpe technique which he blends with the harmonic practices in tonal and jazz music.

For this performance of Anatolian folk, Baysal will be joined by Melisa Yıldırım on kamancha, Rıza Koyupınar on percussion, Suna Alan on voice, and Dursun Can Çakın on bağlama. 

The bağlama or saz is an emblem of Anatolian culture, played during Alevi religious practices, spiritual songs and dances. Come journey through Anatolia as Tuna Semih Savaşal shares the real stories behind the music.
