Discover the musical soundscapes and traditions of Turkish Classical World Music

Monday, October 17, 2022—Concord, MA– Join us on Friday, November 4 at 7 pm for a lecture on Turkish Music where together we will explore traditional Turkish classical world music from Berklee Professor of World Music Bengisu Gokce. Guaranteed to captivate the audience, she will guide us through Turkish culture, music, and an assortment of Turkish instruments that create the unique and beautiful sounds of its country. Plus, she’ll demonstrate the beautiful sounds of Turkish music.

Turkey’s music was shaped over the centuries with the influence of many civilizations, cultures, and traditions. Given the country’s proximity to both Eastern and Western cultures, making Turkish music a rich combination of both cultures. The music of Turkey includes diverse elements ranging from Central Asian folk music to influences from Byzantine music, Greek music, Ottoman music, Persian music, and Balkan music, as well as references to more modern European and American popular music.

Turkish-born and raised, Bengisu is a multi-genre violinist and singer, known for combining the music of her Turkish roots with Eastern-European and Middle Eastern traditions. As a professionally renowned performer, Bengisu’s versatile playing has led her to share the stage with music icons including Mark O’Connor, Tigran Hamasyan, Aynur Dogan, Shreya Ghoshal, Toninho Horta, Shankar Mahadevan, Simon Shaheen, Amal Murkus, and Pablo Ziegler.
