Turkish music ensemble to perform in Tehran for first time

The Turkish instrumental music ensemble 'Taksim Trio', is scheduled to make its first visit to Iran to hold a one-day concert in Tehran's Milad Tower's International Hall on January 8.

The concert is produced by Mahmoud Shobeiri and Sepehr Sahebi, ISNA reported.

Taksim Trio, enjoying a considerable number of fans in Iran, consists of three prominent Turkish instrumentalists: Hüsnü Şenlendirici, who plays the clarinet, Ismail Tunçbilek, who plays the acoustic and electric Bağlama (Turkish instrument), and Aytaç Doğan who plays the quanun.

The music of these three virtuosos from Istanbul is fed by both the traditional music of the Gypsy and from the sounds of the Bosporus. In their programs, they weave oriental melodies of traditional Turkish and Arabic styles with elements of jazz and classical music.

The music band has already released three albums namely 'Taksim Trio' in 2007, 'Taksim Trio 2' in 2013 and 'Ahi' in 2016.

The band was inspired by the famous Taksim Square in the heart of Istanbul and their first album in 2007 takes inspiration from the square.

The band has several fans in the Middle East, Arab countries and Europe. In Europe, the ethnic side of the Taksim Trio music draw many people because it is a style that they [Europeans] have not listened too much.
