WW Istanbul: Debora Ipekel with Anadol

First broadcast date: 3 January 2018

Debora Ipekel explores the vibrant music scene of her hometown Istanbul through fresh talent, local diggers, and hidden gems straight out of where East meets West.

Debora is joined by Anadol, an instrumental synth-pop project by Gözen Atila, named after an old-fashioned Turkish automobile brand.

Go back
Gözen records with mini organs manufactured during the 70s and 80s. The music is awash with allusions to the moods of old Turkish and European cinema, from the erotic to the melodramatic, and with a reminiscence of the sound and spirit of so-called “tavern music” popular in Turkey’s urban nightlife in the 1980s, a flexible pop style usually performed by a solo keyboardist-singer.
