Attended a live performance for Bulent Ortacgil with Birsen Tezer

First night in Istanbul to celebrate my birthday trip. We lucked out! we get tickets to attend the rare live performance of one of Turkey well known composers and singer Bulent Ortacagil who according to turks took turkish music to the new age rock.. they just love him there and when we got there and listened to him I understood why..
Birsen Tezer was just also an amazing vocalist she has a great voice and it was soo cute it was her birthday..
Both put together you get a memorable performance it was a special night indeed.. earlier setting having dinner in a restaurant and sitting across was Bulent having dinner with his band and his artistic friends with their long hair and they start singing in deep long "Mowal"... Thats why I love Istanbul so much.. never a dull moment when you are with the right company..
Performance was live at Indigo hidden in one of the back streets near Taksim with this great restaurant just across from it. You would never know that this small club from its simple exterior that it hosts such great artists but it seems well known to Istanbulians young crowd.

And with the amazing Bulent Ortacgil

Live both sound just amazing...
