Artist: Barış Manço
Barış Manço is still one of Turkey’s best loved musicians from the 60s / 70s / 80s, and this is him singing with his excellent band Kurtalan Ekspres. He was a musician who was an integral and pioneering part of the Anatolian Rock scene that started in Turkey. This song is from the 1981 album ‘Sözüm Meclisten Dışarı‘. I am really getting a film soundtrack vibe from this track, maybe like a John Carpenter theme…I also am very much in favour of glockenspiels in rock music!
His first name means ‘peace’ in Turkish.
