Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol & Whatsnext? Featuring Tiger Okoshi

13 July 2017 - 19:00

Jazz musician, composer and scholar Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol is making a comeback to the festival after 14 years, this time joined by jazz trumpeter Tiger Okoshi and his genre-bending ensemble Whatsnext? for a night that will defy the boundaries between modern jazz and Turkish music. The modern successor of mehter (janissary) and Ottoman music, Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol will exhibit his musical wisdom, as proven by his peculiar recent release Resolution that saw the dazzling synthesis of New Orleans jazz and çifte telli (a solo Turkish folk dance). The eight piece ensemble will feature Tiger Okoshi, a respected jazz scholar known with his collaborations with jazz veterans like Gary Burton, Bruce Arnold, and Rakalam Bob Moses.
