🇹🇷 Gaye Su Akyol is a talented Turkish lady sparkling in a collective named after herself. Oriental tunes meet state-of-the-art style under her fingertips.
As a new wave musician coming from a melting pot – Istanbul, Gaye Su Akyol doesn’t hesitate to experiment with traditions and bring the new powerful word. It’s all amplified by selected psychedelia, surfing a listener out of cruddy injustice to a better world.
Her ensemble has a lot of weapons not only to entertain but also to inspire. There you’ll hear acoustic and electric guitars, wonderful oud, famous cumbush and gentle percussion, altogether joined by keys and electronics. Don’t forget a trumpet and violin and a row of other magical instrument that they do have.
With Gaye Su Akyol we travel along Bosphorus and learn one precious fable: A Permanent Fantasy Is The Truth*.
* loosely translation of the album’s title, İstikrarlı Hayal Hakikattir.
