Kaan Tangöze has been at the forefront of Turkish indie rock for the past two decades. The singer songwriter found fame as the lead singer of seminal rock band Duman, which he helped found in 1999.
While the band continue to perform live, new material has not been forthcoming. Instead, Tangöze has been focussing on his solo career.
Seven years ago, Tangöze released his debut solo album Gölge Etme, which included the track Taksim Meydanı, inspired by the Taksim Gezi Park protests that occurred in 2013.
In January, Tangöze returned with his second solo offering, Aşık Mahsuni Şerif Türküleri, offering a beautiful interpretation of ten classic Turkish folk songs.
Tangöze’s dreamy acoustic take on the Turkish Blues, known as Türkü in Turkish, includes the songs Boşu Boşuna and Divane Ettim Aklımı. All ten tracks were recorded in his Istanbul studios, with the music, singing and song arrangements all undertaken by the left-handed guitarist.
The star has been touring his music in the US, and will stop off in London for his final international gig at the Jazz Café, before returning to his native Turkiye.
