Boston, USA – Rounder Records released today a collection of Turkish music. Haydar Haydar: Masters of Turkish Music, Volume 3 (Rounder 1140-2) features artists like Tanburi Cemil Bey, Refik Bey and Münir Nurettin Selçuk inspire the same passions in Turkey that King Oliver, Dock Boggs and Charley Patton
do in the United States.
These vintage recordings of Turkish music by a number of great Turkish musicians span the first fifty years of the 20th century, from 1906 to 1953. Since the early recorded repertoire includes Ottoman court, folk, and popular music, Rounder presents all three on this CD.
Produced by Münir Nurettin Beken, Dick Spottswood, and Karl Signell.
