About The ShowCity Winery Boston presents Erkan Oğur and Ismail Hakkı Demircioğlu live in concert on Tuesday, October 31st at 7:30PM.
For over two decades, Erkan Oğur and Ismail Hakkı Demircioğlu have been interpreting the ancient songs of Anatolia using traditional musical instruments (saz, baglama lute) and modern ones (fretless guitar). They have toured extensively in Turkey and abroad, and collaborated on two albums (Gülün Kokusu Vardı, 1998 and Anadolu Beşik, 2000).
Erkan Ogur is best known for his invention of fretless guitar. He is also one of the most critically acclaimed guitar players whose name crossed borders. Ismail Hakki Demircioglu is a strings wizard and the duo`s artistic chemistry on stage is famed. The duos playlist consists of some old and some older Anatolian folk songs; therefore they call it “a joint attempt in reminiscing”.
