turkish music

Listening music is a good method to improve your hearing in any language, so it would be great if you recommend music in Turkish language.

First people to come to my mind:

  • Rock (or mixture of pop/rock): Şebnem Ferah, Duman, Teoman, Demir Demirkan...

  • Turkish Folk Music: Kazım Koyuncu, Volkan Konak (Blacksea), Sümer Ezgü, Orhan Hakalmaz (Aegean), Neşet Ertaş (Inner Anatolia)...

I know almost nothing about Turkish music, but here are like 3 songs I do know (except for Kiss Kiss hahaha): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmoY4g2X9fc, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S0gapP7wjo, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8OwZvL9VEg

It's pop music, so I don't know if you're into that, but those are the only ones I know.

be careful when you are listening to Hadise, she was grown up in Belgium and she has a slight accent, especially her es are usually strange :)

Thank you! The reason I know her is because she's from Belgium. Go Hadise!

I love Anatolian rock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatolian_rock), particularly Bariş Manço and Cem Karaca.

I love the album "Yengeç" by Hediye Güven. It also is kind of jazzy with songs in english as well.

I like the Turkish post-punk band She Past Away. To my knowledge, all of their lyrics are in Turkish.

Is their Turkish throat singing like Turkic/Mongolian/Tuvan? I might give it a shot...

Hüsnü Şenlendirici ve Trio Chios and Café Aman İstanbul have a lot of folk(ish?) songs if you want something more traditional. Many of these are sung in Turkish and Greek so if you also speak Greek it can help your understanding of the meaning of the Turkish lyrics. I like Ezginin Günlüğü too and Cem Karaca. :)
