Music from Turkey and Belgium, with the participation of the Taksim Trio and the quartet: Emre Gültekin | Joris Vanvinckenroye | Wouter Vandenabeele | Ertan Tekin.
The perfectly coordinated Taksim Trio has been admired in homeland Turkey and internationally for years.
The trio connects traditional Turkish music, jazz, rock and classical music in a hypnotic way. Even though traditional instruments are played, the music is anything but. Expect catchy gypsy melodies and driving electronic jazz, combined with Arabic keys.
