Concert 'Ageless garden & Turkish Music essentials'

Mehmet Polat, ud & vocals Alper Kekec, percussions & vocals

Mehmet Polat is as a contemporary ud player and composer. From Africa to India, Persia to the Balkans, Contemporary to Jazz, he has been combining various musical genres with his Alevi Spiritual, Anatolian Folk and Ottoman classical music background.

Alper Kekec is known as a great percussion player. He is also coming from Turkey, playing music of various traditions and styles.

One of the best ways of getting deep into Turkish Classical and Folk Music, you must learn as big repertoire as possible. During my study years I got the patience and chance to learn several thousands of songs. Those were from many different musical and influential diversity. Such as different makams, periods, composers, regions, believes and so. We will delighted to sing some of those songs for our audience. And half of the concert we will play my compositions from my ud album 'Ageless garden'.
