Moving, genuine and stunning folk music from the Van-region of Turkey guests det turkise telt.

Childhood friends Fuat Talay and Cahit Ece both have proud roots in the culture rich region of Van in Eastern Turkey. Here, Turkish, Kurdish, Azeri and Armenian people live side by side, and the music played by Fuat & Cahit is a story of the same diversity. A full yet delicate sound where beautiful Anatolian folk music intersects with the sounds of sufi and alevi traditions striking new harmonies. With Fuat playing the baglama and Cahit playing kaval and balaban (two local flute instruments) the duo sings and plays their way through the folklore music of the Van-region with dreamy precision, haunting melancholy and sweeping soundscapes leaving the mind to wonder to the vast mountain landscapes of Eastern Turkey. Follow the music and let the duo guide you on a beautiful journey to their homeland.
