Hasretim (Released February 2011)

New Released and Upcoming Albums

The warm and expressive voice of Muzaffer Gürenç rewards the listener of this album with a diverse repertoire that includes a variety of genres from melancholy ballads to joyous dance music. Folksongs from multiple regions of Turkey are given a modern interpretation thanks to collaboration with producer Hakan Akay. Jazz contributions from the Dutch musician Esra Dalfidan, the soft vocals of Turkish performer Devrim Gürenc, and the harmonious combination of European and Oriental instruments bring Anatolian and World music together, forming a rich blend. Thus, the album becomes an audible symbol of the unity of different cultures, centering on Muzaffer Gürenç’s musical renderings of both well-known lyrical texts and unknown original poems such as “Hasretim”.
