Uyuttum atlari in Roots Music Canada: New songs from old favourites

“It’s a haunting number about a woman mourning the loss of a loved one and searching for lost sisters. Murders of women are an issue in Turkey, vocalist Özgü Özman explained to me back in the winter, in the same way that missing and murdered Indigenous women are a concern here. The song features core band members Özgü on vocals, Ozan Boz on electric guitar and drums, Chris Gartner on bass, Michael Occhipinti on electric guitar, Lina Allemano on trumpet, and Patrick Graham on, in this case, taiko drums. Özgü’s mournful vocals are wrapped in a trippy, atmospheric arrangement that typifies the band’s sound.”
