A decade after her first appearance at Indigo at The O2, Sibel Can will return to the same Greenwich stage in June of this year.
The Istanbul born singer is one of Turkiye’s most popular entertainer, with a string of hit songs and albums during a glistening career that started when she was a teenager and spanned nearly forty years.
The daughter of a talented violinist of Yugoslavian heritage, Can started performing as a belly dancer, and then singer, accompanying her father on stage across Turkiye.
By the time she was 17, Can was being invited to play at legendary venues such as Maksim, where she shared the stage with the likes of Muazzez Abacı, Neşe Karaböcek and Emel Sayın.
In 1987, with the help of bağlama virtuoso, composer and singer Orhan Gencebay, Can released her first album, Günah Bize, on the Kervan Plak record label. This was the first of several collaborations with Gencebay, who would produce several of Can’s early albums, which firmly established her star credentials.
Straddling a number of genres, including arabesque, Turkish folk, blues, pop, and classical, that span a gamut of human emotions and experiences from upbeat to sorrowful, Can’s music speaks to people of all ages and backgrounds.
Some of her standout tracks over the years include Padişah (from the album Bu Devirde, 1997), Lale Devri (from the album Özledin mi?, 2005), Berivan (from the album Daha Yolun Başındayım, 1999), Ağladım Olmadı (from the album Bulursun Beni, 1988).
The singer, now aged 52, has released 23 albums to date, her most recent being Hayat in 2020. However, a new song, Bize Kaldı, released in October of last year, suggests a new album is on the way.
