My good friend Sevinç invited me along to see one of her favourite Turkish bands, Duman, who were playing at Konyaatli Ampitheatre.
They were formed in 1997 and have Kaan Tangöze on Vocals and guitar, Ari Barokas on bass guitar and backing vocals, Batuhan Mutlugil on lead guitar and backing vocals and Cengiz Baysal on drums.
It turns out that I knew quite a few of their songs because many of the bands who play in the bars of Kaleici play them regularly.
They certainly knew how to put a good show on and didn’t disappoint the audience as they played all their favourites in a gig that lasted nearly 3 hours.
It was a last minute decision to go to the gig and we were both very happy that we did.
After the gig Sevinç took me for a Kokereç sandwich wasn’t as good as one I got another time and she let the chef know it wasn’t up to scratch in no uncertain terms. Still, it was a good end to a fine evening. 🙂
