PSYCHEDELIC(60s-70s) / FOLK-ROCK (60s-70s)
In Turkey, psychedelia wasn’t just some fleeting fad. Fuzzed-out guitar shredding genuinely intersected with some of the goals of traditional folk & classical music. As a result, even former twist singers & folk balladeers explored some fascinating & wild territory. Meet Alpay, the soccer player turned lawyer turned singer who started matching local lyrics to Western arrangements even before the mid-60s countrywide battle of the bands concerts. These early 70s singles lay down doleful Anatolian melodies, and they’re simply soaking in heavy & wah-ed out guitar solos. If you’re ready to go beyond Baris & Erkin, this is the perfect spot.
