Psychedelic and Orient go together perfectly. The Turkish Anadolu rockers had already recognised this in the 70s. 40 years later, Dutchman Jasper Verhulst awakens the fusion of Turkish folklore and psychedelic rock to a compelling retro fun. On the way from Turkey to the Netherlands, his Dutch-Turkish band picks up a few Italo-synthpop splashes. What world music projects like Embryo or the Dissidenten have initiated, Altin Gün revitalises with a fresh easy-going that ignites especially live. Festivals as diverse as the Montreux Jazz Festival and Coachella could boast them – and now the Pure&Crafted.
