Zel Zele is proud to present Mavi Güneş 69, a band formed by Osman Murat Ertel, frontman and co-founder of Istanbul’s cult psychedelic folk band BaBa ZuLa, together with his partner Esma Ertel, songwriter, singer and dancer. Mavi Güneş 69 blends ancient folk tales, theremin dances and words of wisdom with electronics and psychedelia. 3 Çember, meaning 3 Circles, is a dubbed out electric saz jam with haunting theremin sounds and hypnotic vocals, led by Esma’s mystical incantation - “We are born, we move round and round in circles until we find our soul, soul then wonders for its companion, hearts reach bodies and fire reach the skies.” In Yafta industrial electronics meet Anatolian rhythms, infused with a punk attitude. Yafta, meaning, ‘labelling’, encourages breaking free of society’s confines. “Came into this world, opened my eyes, I had no labels, was bare-naked, hastily they dressed me in a pair of briefs to mark my identity.” You can hear their sons accompanying them on vocals.
