Fiona's Comments

Remember the plight of the Dodo? Follows that Re Mi Fa Sol La Ti will get it next. A tune to invite the G men to wise up.

About the Album

The album has been recorded in Istanbul as a trio, including classical guitar, double bass and percussion. Overall the album is formed with an acoustic sound that combines the fusion of Anatolian themes, Middle East and Latin rhythms together with modern jazz. The album focuses on global climate change and the environmental movements such as Gezi Park resistance. HES Off is a song that tries to describe vibrant rivers with its lively rhythm and tune changes. It depicts the wipe-out of high waters and harmful effects of HES (Hydroelectric Power Plant) that plunder the forests, changes riverbeds and leaves no water in streams even for animals to survive.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
