Selda – “Turkulerimiz 6″ – [Pharaway Sounds]

It is no surprise that we have Selda well represented in our KFJC library. Not only is she a great musician (she took up mandolin at 5), but her political statements through music have made her music controversial in her native Turkey, where she has spent much time in jail for expressing her views. Most of the songs on this disc are very lively and jaunty, belying the serious nature of the lyrics. Selda had to try twice to be accepted into the music world, and in between she studied Turkish folk poetry, which certainly influenced this album. Be sure to read the liner notes for a great description of the background of Selda’s music.
