<p>What I have presented here are some rough demos of songs I have arranged from inspiration from various Turkish songs by such performers as Ruhi Su, Asik Veysel, Neset Ertas and Haci Tasan. In time I will record professional quality versions of them.
Most of the lyrics are reflections on the originals, I would write them by making a rough translation of the Turkish original and then create a similar likeness using some of the themes I found therein. In that sense the songs are original, though inspired from the previous Ottoman poets Pir Sultan Abdal, Yunus Emre or Karacoaglan.
I hope you enjoy them ~ Kevin Germain
