Turkish Folk Music Made in Germany


Derdiyoklar was a Turkish Folk band from Germany in the 80s. It has its roots in the German culture of immigrants where Turks still constitute the biggest group.

They had quite an interesting sound, a melange of Turkish music played with electro saz and drums, sounding psychedelic and using disco elements. It is a unique and very special pearl in the German music scene that I usually do not follow that well.

Into the Wild

Autumn is the time to go outside and explore the nature.

I am mostly a summer guy but here in Germany, where I am often disappointed by the weather, the autumn season is something special. 

Strangely it is becoming sunny at the end of September/beginning of October. While you can find yourself in a very rainy and almost cold August or late summer in September, when the autumn comes the times are changing for a few weeks into a sunny and colorful landscape.

Dinar Bandosu - Psycho Freaks

New Psychedelic Turkish music is the topic today with a great band, Dinar Bandosu. Freaky psycho guitar sounds that takes you on an unknown trip. I already posted one song of them here and I think you can find some stuff on my mix tapes.

Erkin Koray - Elektronik Türküler

Article from vinyl microstore

I will be on vacation for three weeks. I am already preparing for it, that means there will not be a lot of activity here if at all. 

So let me reblog the full album of Erkin Koray's "Elektronik Türküler". It is one of my favorite discs. I think the name says everything.
As the article states, you can feel the music, no need for Turkish language skills.

It is raining - Samuel Gawith Balkan Flake

Today something else than music. You maybe already know I am a pipe smoker. Good music and pipes go very well together.
It is raining here and the big heatwave went away, time for some real tobacco. That means I need something strong and full bodied, like a good English blend can offer. The summer was mostly dominated by some kind of Virginia flakes. Now is the time to go back to my beloved Latakia leaf.
