The new voice of Istanbul, Gaye Su Akyol, is on her way to the stars and international fame. Inspired by Nirvana, Nick Cave and Tom Waits, this singer-songwriter combines Turkish folk tones with psychedelic rock, grunge and electro, giving the songs a poetic, chic unity.
Her latest album, “İstikrarlı Hayal Hakikattir” (Consistent Fantasy is Reality, 2018), openly criticizes Turkey’s tense political situation and is a manifest for free society and dreams. The album has been published by a famous record company Glitterbeat Records that focuses on world music.
