Paye and Sensar music concert
P A Y E
Founded and based in Berlin, PAYE is a new collaboration of musicians Ufuk Elik (saz, baglama, lute) and Cem Dinler (keys, synthesizers) each of whom has been part of the music scene in Istanbul for many years respectively. They both grew up listening to traditional songs and playing Anatolian melodies. While Ufuk pursued his childhood dream and chose “saz” as his main instrument and Turkish folk music as his musical realm, Cem shifted gears into Western music genres and became a pianist after studying Jazz Composition. Their paths crossed, only after they both moved to Berlin and PAYE was born. The duo focuses on blending traditional Anatolian tunes with electronic sounds and reflects upon the history of Berlin from past to present, through new musical textures.
S E N S A R
SenSar was formed by various musicians in a shared apartment in Istanbul. Playing together spontaneously at home on the roof terrace, the band gradually took its first steps. It continued with small concerts at events. When the band members moved to other countries, the band initially disbanded. Now the members Mithat Can Öner and Metin Yerkan live in Berlin, meet and play their own compositions and covers in Turkish. The songs have different forms, melodies and emotions. There is no clear line in the styles of the songs. They find their form with the feelings that come from within.
Tickets 10euro at the door only.
