Istanbulive: The Sounds & Colors of Turkey

AIR's Jeannie Hopper speaks with Mehmet Dede, co-producer of Istanbulive: The Sounds & Colors of Turkey, and musicians Sertab Erener and Demir Demirkan, whose project Painted on Water is featured in the festival. They discuss their separate projects and the goals of the festival, which brings together artists of a variety of Turkish cultural and ethnic backgrounds under the New York SummerStage banner (1 hour 10 minutes).

From homegrown grassroots movements, tradition, and musical experimentation comes a wide and international array of musicians who put their own spin on national and indigenous music. Sometimes rupturing the traditions of the past and sometimes affirming them, the songs of these shows spring from the porches of the world.
