Princes Amongst Men: Cigdem Aslan & Tahir Palali
Cigdem Aslan and Tahir Palali perform deep rooted songs of love and mysticism, from 14th-20th century Alevi poets of Anatolia. Cigdem’s remarkable voice – as heard on her solo albums, and with She’Koyokh – has ensured she is widely celebrated. Tahir plays the three stringed instrument Tembur/ Dede Sazi from eastern Turkey. Both musicians have been brought up with the Alevi musical tradition where playing the tembur and singing is considered 'The sound of Truth/God'. Tonight’s performance is a rare one from a duo both often performing internationally and will be very special indeed.
DJ Garth Cartwright plays music from Europe and Asia’s ragged borders.
