PAYE - Ufuk Elik and Cem Dinler

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.
