Kolektif İstanbul & Entu: 21:30
Are you ready for an adventure across the Balkans to the grounds of Anatolia? Entu and Kolektif Istanbul is ready to take you on a musical journey on February 9 at Studio!
Kolektif Istanbul grew up from the meeting of musicians from villages playing at fetes and marriage ceremonies in the "homeland", and musicians with improvisation backgrounds from different modern styles but all in Istanbul with the colors of Istanbul. “Gayda” (Bulgarian bagpipes), clarinet, saxophone, accordion, tuba, percussions, drums all these instruments make this a unit with a great richness of sound which combines both the Balkan fanfare dynamism and the Anatolian “blues” depth. The Ensemble gains in intensity and emotion with Asli Dogan, the voice of this project, which carries all the expressiveness and sensitivity of the popular song.
After their very first album “Balkanatolia”, 2006 the band went through a musical evolution which brought them to “Krivoto” released on June 2008. With a funky and jazzy touch Kolektif Istanbul doubled their tempo and so their energy! In 2013 the band released their third studio album “Kerevet”. Nevertheless, the original characters of the melodies, inspirations, and so themes on the path of musical travel, has been overcome with "respect" and gaining ethical positions, in the other hand, while great freedom is taken with the orchestrations.
Kolektif Istanbul performed some outstanding shows and made out great parties at Montreux Jazz Festival, Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, SESC Pompeia and keep touring in prestigious festivals and venues across the world.
In Homshetsma: “Across”
Entu was founded in 2006. It was first named as “entudağaker”, meaning children from across. These children grew up and decided to continue under the name of Entu. Finally finding their own sound 4 years after initiating the band, Entu started producing Black Sea-Reggae music. Front man Harun Topal relocated to Istanbul in 2000 and met Kazım Koyuncu, an active figure in Black Sea traditional music, and started his musical journey. Closely working with Koyuncu for about four years, Topal learned the principles of Black Sea’s wild and intriguing melodies and also learned to play tulum, trombone, trumpet and saxophone. Topal and his friends started mixing these inspirational melodies to create unique sounds of Anatolian ground and released their debut album “Dostikolar”.
