In our first project, we are performing Istanbul Tangos. They were originally composed by various composer from Istanbul in Turkish and specially arranged by a group member Ethem Demir for our group. These Tangos were composed between the 1920s and 1970s. 

1001 NIGHTS TANGOS

In our concert, you are going to experience the fascinating examples of Turkish Tangos. 

In one song you feel ecstasy of love and in another you feel jealous.  

Sometimes while you think about your memories suddenly you feel a puff of wind on your face from oriental deserts. 

Sometimes you hear the desire filled steps of Tango approaching one by one and sometimes you complain your heart pounding unheard. 

When you think ”last memories”, you say to yourself ”I cried so much”.

In Istanbul, every love turns into a song. Every song carries scars of Istanbul and hides its story inside. You discover them one by one as you savour their melodies..
