Zoom: https://springfield.zoom.us/j/91713192450 Meeting ID: 917 1319 2450


In this exclusive virtual concert, Mehmet Ali Sanlikol will take listeners on a journey of Turkish musical traditions through the lens of his one-of-kind compositional approach. There will be a discussion during the performance of the history associated with instruments played and various musical styles introduced.
 
A musical polymath, Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol has composed for, performed, and toured with international stars and ensembles from across a wide musical spectrum.

Sanlıkol’s unique blend of jazz composition and Turkish music has been praised by the Boston Globe as “a true fusion of jazz and folkloric Turkish language and colors.”

Sanlıkol pairs Turkish instruments, such as zurna (double reed wind), ney (end-blown flute), kös (large kettledrums), and nekkare (small kettledrums) with the jazz orchestra/combo to perform his Turkish music-influenced compositions.
