Turkish violin

Ok we understand the easy walses of André Rieu, but here something more radical of Alsin M. I have a Turkish colleague who plays the sas, a Turkish Guitar. It is quite difficult for us to understand the beauty of this larmoyant unisono oriental music.

There are loads of really good violin players in Turkey with a strong romany influence in their playing. The violin tends to be used as a solo instrument, acting as vocal but with equal billing to the other instruments.

Bram, I really don't have a problem with the waltz king (having memories of listening to my Dad's Mantovani Waltz collection).

Peace and get wild ;)

I liked the music just fine . . . what I couldn't understand was that other girl in the black dress--what's she supposed to be doing? Is she the dancer?

I think so. She does not sing backing vocals or together with the leading singer. I can ask my colleague.
