Tülay German & Francois Rabath - Homage To Nazim Hikmet [Zehra 004 Promo]

Continuing on their path of Tülay German reissues with "Homage To Nazim Hikmet" put out on the circuit on April 8th, 2k22 the Zehra label presents the next collaborational album which sees the seminal Turkish singer Tülay German working with French saz and double bass player Francois Rabbath. Originally recorded in the early 80s and first released via Arion in 1982 the twelve songs on this 39 minutes spanning longplay piece once again shine a light on the beauty and significance of this bi-national collaboration which fuses the powerful tradition of ancient Turkish Folk music with sparse, oftentimes melancholia-infused instrumentation which puts a touching emotional spell even on those who cannot speak or understand the Turkish at all. Two to check out: the dramatic "Urganda Gerdan Iniler" as well as the more elegic and nocturnal, almost DarkJazz-infused "Hürriyet Kavgasi". Deep.
