Cüneyt Sepetçi

(Living Music Duplication, Istanbul / Burgas)

Istanbul’s traditionally informed clarinet virtuoso Cüneyt Sepetçi is on an intense trip into modern Turkish wedding and party music. The foundations go deep into Turkey and the surrounding regions’ history, which each generation innovates and develops. These days, no wedding or circumcision party is complete without the sound of the micro-tonal keyboard. A new addition, these Turkish keyboardists can play between notes, and supply banging club rhythms in a wide variety of time signatures. At home one may see Sepetçi playing for change on Istiklal Caddesi, the famous Turkish walking street at the center of the city. Or one may see him on one of the TV stations, playing Anatolian songs in his inimitable style. He’s even begun touring outside of Turkey - at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival, and at concerts in Beirut, and Israel. “I want to go to America.” He says. “Do they have mosques there?”
