Gaye Su Akyol’s music is deeply rooted in Turkish culture but also explores a seductive passion lying underneath, balancing both bittersweet traditional and modern elements. The singer from Istanbul combines psychedelic melodies with twangy, sultry guitars and strong rhythmic accompaniment. Inspired by classic songs she heard on Turkish radio and television as a child, she has shaped her own rock-infused, personal style and sound. Echoing both Turkey’s faded past and dramatic present, Gaye Su Akyol has become an important part of the new Turkish underground music scene. With the band Bubituzak she will perform the intoxicating, cinematic sounds of her newest, highly acclaimed album, 'Hologram Imparatorlugu' as well as many other gems.
