Our take

A captivating fusion of infectious music, humor, and cultural insight, this resplendent look at the roots of Turkish-German music delves deeply into notions of identity, protest, and solidarity. Turn up the volume for a heart-palpitating cocktail of psychedelic riffs and rebellious beats.
