“In the universe, there are things that are known, and things that areunknown, and in between, there are doors,” nineteenth century poet and novelist William Blake once beautifully suggested. To discover new things you sometimes need someone to open a door between the knownand the unknown. Altin Gün (‘Golden Day’) is the band holding that door handle. And when the door swings open you smell, feel and hear a mix of sounds you may have heard before separately but never in this brilliant new context that sounds totally new.
On their debut album ‘On’ (Bongo Joe Records), the band show what happens when you open doors between Turkish folk songs which were passed on from generation to generation on the one hand and a dirty blend of funk rhythms, wah-wah guitars and analogue organs onthe 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.

It is touching music that makes you want to move and massages your soul all at once. Music that sounds familiar but different. Music that’s deeply emotional even for someone who doesn’t speak aword of Turkish. Let Altin Gün open that door for you and get ready to indulge in their fresh and beautiful sound.
