Istanbul Ekspres festival

written by Charlotte Huyghe on Tuesday 23 September 2014

The Istanbul Ekspres festival (7 - 16.11) aims to give a comprehensive overview of what’s brewing at the lively music scene of Istanbul. From Turkish pop and rock by Gökçe and Bulutsuzluk Özlemi, through oriental jazz by darbuka-virtuoso Levent Yildririm or festive Balkan music by Kolektif Istanbul, right up to the classical grandmasters with Itrî and Bach.
