    Depends what kind of music you like really, my favorites are:

    Singers: Ferhat Göçer, Rafet El Roman, Teoman

    Rock Bands: Mor ve Ötesi, ManGa, Duman, Kurban, Seksendört

    Punk/ska: Athena

    I somehow prefer male voices:-)


    I love teoman, mor ve ötesi, and especially duman! I also prefer male singers across all genres and languages. I think we have similar tastes :D


    I am really surprised that no one recommended Barış Manço and Sezen Aksu. You must listen them. Also I recommend Yeni Türkü, Candan Erçetin, Sıla, Şebnem Ferah


    Ayşe Hatun Önal :)


    Toygar Işıklı


    İrem Derici! Her songs are extremely catchy and you will be singing them all day long! Just a warning. :)


    Ayyuka are great, as are Bunalım (they're also referred to as Bunalımlar, but it's the same band.. I'm not sure whether one is more correct than the other - both appear on album art).


    Ulvi Cemal Erkin is a good Classical composer :) No Turkish lyrics though :(


    I discovered the Turkish singer Mizan a few years ago when he performed an English-language cover of a David Bowie song which I liked.


    you could listen beduk.he also has english songs.


    I'd suggest listening to Mor ve Ötesi and Teoman if you're into rock music, Sezen Aksu is usually dubbed as the queen of Turkish pop and her songwriting is really good too, so it could be more fun trying to decipher her lyrics. Sertab Erener, Candan Erçetin and Sıla are very famous pop singers as well, Sertab has a background in opera so you can hear the influences in some of her songs like Aşk, Candan Erçetin has got some really emotional songs with more of a traditional Turkish sound and Sıla has had amazing success with countless hits these past few years.

    These are the first artists that came to mind so yeah, hope you enjoy!


    Yalın makes pretty good music. One of my favorite songs by him is Yeniden.


    if you are interested in the origins of Turkish rock music, you must get acquainted with the creativity of ERKIN KORAY


    To me, Koray Avcı is pretty good at singing. I also recommend İlyas Yalçıntaş, Sagopa, Ceza and such.
