The story behind this very special record involves sessions held over a span of a number of years between friends, collaborators and acquaintances. Spearheaded by Ilhan Ersahin on saxophone and Wurlitzer electric piano and clarinet master Husnu Senlendirici, the project coalesces behind the vocals of three famous vocalists: Gilberto Gil, Jane Birkin and Seyyal Taner (often described as the Tina Turner of Turkey). Along with those legendary figures, the project also features an impressive array of players exploring a gypsy/arabesque musical strain.
This album is being released by Sony Music Turkey in Turkey, Nublu Records in US, Modular in EU and Japan. I designed album artworks and commercial materials. I found the cover photo on behance.net, which was taken by Camille Le Bras, a French photographer lives in Istanbul. Inside photo by Levent Sevi.
