Atina Büyükelçiliği 28.05.2014
A great Turkish saxophone player, who was born in Stockholm and studied in the USA. A musician who embraces contemporary American jazz and its ideology, but who also considers Middle-eastern and Balkan culture as a main ingredient of his music and manages to incorporate it in his own compositions and creations in a very natural way. His music ranges from traditional Turkish and gypsy music up to contemporary electronica. A special place in his music range is reserved for his work with the groups titled “Istanbul Sessions” in whose music we can find some of the most beautiful and charming faces of contemporary world jazz. The case of Ilhan Ersahin is one of the most peculiar and worth mentioning ones in today’s jazz scene. The Wonderland story began twelve years ago, when Ersahin met Husnu Senlendirici, one of the main exponents of the gypsy/balkan musical tradition, an impressive feat for a musician under 40 years old. He is a Turkish celebrity from a traditional musical family whose fame stems more from his musical acumen than from his frequent TV appearances.
