If you listen to the music of Nazım Sabuncu & KANADA on one side you can feel the passion for state-of-the-art pop music with funk, rock or electronic elements. But on the other side you get an oriental flavor! You can feel the love for Anatolian folk sounds played with traditional instruments like bağlama or darbuka.
And what started casually during a corona jam session in 2020 is now getting mellow with the support of excellent musicians like Kadir Doğan or Jörg Bielfeldt on the drums and Mert Eylem on the darbuka. Besides in the background you can hear influences of Turkish artists of the 1970s like Neşe Karaböcek, Barış Manço and more, as well as similarities to contemporary world music acts like the Turkish psychedelic band Baba Zula.
Now it’s time to share it with a bigger audience! So maybe if you give them a chance, they will inspire you also – at least to enjoy the sounds and to dance!
