One of the most accomplished Turkish musicians whose compositions are performed by some of the most esteemed orchestras in the world and who is known for being a talented pianist and singer as well as a composer, Selen Gülün brings her solid project, Women’s Matinée, to the festival stage. The idea for the project materialised for the first time in 2011 when Donne in Musica asked Selen Gülen to perform with Italian musicians a selection of works by Turkish female musicians during the Donne in Jazz festival. The project was developed throughout the following years and in 2017 resulted in an album of the same name, Kadınlar Matinesi (Women’s Matinée). The album is given life by more than 10 female artists who contribute through their compositions, instruments and vocals, and is a first in Turkish musical history. Selen Gülün’s dynamic music that features a variety of styles blending the classical with the modern is the pillar of this solidarity.
