GAYE SU AKYOL
Gaye Su Akyol’s influences are intertwined with those of his city of birth, the magnificent Istanbul. “It’s a cliché, but the city is a bridge that combines cultures, and that’s very true in music, especially the Greek influence”. Traditional music was very important for the beginning of Gaye's path that was defined by his growth, with the discovery of rock, with some emphasis on Seattle grunge and later psychedelic rock from the 70's. With an engaging and hypnotic voice, Gaye can be very sweet but very somber at the same time, taking us on trips where we can feel all these different sources and experiences that Gaye lived. His second and new album "Hologram Imparatorlugu", released in November 2016, was a milestone in the underground music scene in Istanbul in an increasingly difficult and severe political context for artists like Gaye.
