4th January 2015: Üç Hürel – Gönül Sabreyle Sabreyle

Language – Turkish

Translation – The heart with a sword, with a sword

This was a stand-out song for me on the excellent compilation album ‘Love, Peace and Poetry – Asian Psychedelic Music’. On a trip to Istanbul I found a CD by Üç Hürel which showcases their excellent musical talent.  Turkish pop music often seems to follow a chromatic scale, and I think it is this combined with the often unfamiliar instruments that makes it so exciting to listen to.
