Kolektif İstanbul

“Kolektif Istanbul has been mainly based on musical variance of Eastern Europe in the sense of traditional Turkish repertories. By this intention which primarily refers to a subjective positioning on musical understanding through ethnic and traditional music is what the project aims to acknowledge cultural sharing and meetings in where the “traditionally repertory” represents the bulk of the marriages and rituals that are surrounded by. The main context of the musical purpose is mostly focusing on the “meeting” of Anatolian and Balkan Cultures. After their very first album “Balkanatolia”, 2006 the band went through a musical evolution which brought them to “Krivoto” released on June 2008. With a funky and jazzy touch Kolektif Istanbul doubled their tempo and so their energy! Nevertheless, the original characters of the melodies, inspirations, and so themes on the path of musical travel, has been overcome with “respect” and gaining ethical positions, in the other hand, while great freedom is taken with the orchestrations.
Kolektif Istanbul grew up from the meeting of musicians from villages playing at fetes and marriage ceremonies in the “homeland”, and musicians with improvisation backgrounds from different modern styles but all in Istanbul with the colors of Istanbul.“Gayda” (Bulgarian bagpipes), clarinet, saxophone, accordion, tuba, percussions, drums all these instruments make this a unit with a great richness of sound which combines both the Balkan fanfare dynamism and the Anatolian “blues” depth. The Ensemble gains in intensity and emotion with Asli Dogan, the voice of this project, which carries all the expressiveness and sensitivity of the popular song. Kolektif Istanbul performed some outstanding shows and made out great parties at Montreux Jazz Festival, Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, SESC Pompeia and keep touring in prestigious festivals and venues across the world and recently released their third studio album.”
