2018 release. On their debut album 'On' (Bongo Joe Records), Altin Gun show what happens when you open doors between Turkish folk songs on the one hand and a dirty blend of funk rhythms, wah-wah guitars and analogue organs on the other. The Amsterdammers who come from various backgrounds (Turkish but also Indonesian and Dutch) comfortably create their work in the adventurous no-man's land that exists between these two worlds. Older generations of Turkish musicians have also experimented with opening doors between previously unconnected sonic worlds. During the seventies, artists such as Baris Manço, Selda Bagcan and Erkin Koray practiced a way of songwriting and composing similar to Altin Gün's. Manço, Bagcan and Koray have all influenced Altin Gün, but their foremost inspiration is Neset Ertas, a Turkish folk musician whose musical legacy is invaluable. Let Altin Gün open that door for you and get ready to indulge in their fresh and beautiful sound.
