Groove Alla Turca

with Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Burhan Oçal and the Istanbul Oriental Ensemble
The 2001 Grand Évènement GM offers a stunning alliance between traditional Turkish music and American Jazz-Funk. GROOVE ALLA TURCA is an invitation to musical adventure in its purest form, as performed by two master musicians : Burhan Oçal and Jamaaladeen Tacuma. The first, while at the head of his Oriental Istanbul Ensemble, for years now and the world over, has been revealing the sonorities inspired by his native land, Turkey. As for Jamaaladeen Tacuma, he singlehandledly re-invented the modern electric bass. Funky to a fault, but nevertheless refined, his interpretations are a constant source of pulsating marvels, as big as his heart.

This meeting of both ensembles, with special guest Mercan Dede, a Montreal artist of Turkish extraction, will undoubtedly constitute the Turkish delight of the summer.
