Adana album released in Turkey !

Hovanissian-Gültekin on Kalan Music
© Jan Locus

After being nominated in the world music category at the Sabam Awards, the album ’Adana’ came out in a Turkish-Armenian edition on the Kalan Music-label on the Turkish market ! A new page in the history of this great album by the Armenian duduk-player Vardan Hovanissian and the Turkish singer and saz player Emre Gültekin , which symbolises reconciliation and friendship between two cultures that have many roots in common. We’re very happy that the liner notes of this edition are in Turkish and in Armenian.

With the album Adana, Vardan Hovanissian and Emre Gültekin have won the Octave de la Musique 2016 for World Music.

In 1991, Kalan Müzik was founded by Hasan Saltık. It was named after the pre-1936 name of the town of Tunceli (its founder’s birthplace, but also the birthplace of Emre Gültekins father Lüftü), but also means "Surviving Music" in Turkish.

Kalan’s output started with reissues of old 78 rpm records of late Ottoman music, the legendary voices of Armenian and Greek minority singers, and of old great recordings of rebetika and klezmer music, from names such as Tanburi Cemil Bey, Udi Hrant, Yorgo Bacanos, or tango singer Seyyan Hanım.[

A majority of Kalan’s releases are Saltık’s recordings of traditional music from the many communities and minorities in Turkey and neighbouring regions, such as Kurdish folk songs, Armenian chants, Turkish ballads, Judeo-Spanish tunes, authentic village ceremonial music, Gypsy melodies from Thrace, polyphonic Lazish music from northeast Turkey, Zaza songs from Tunceli, the music of Pomaks (Slavonic Muslims originating from Bulgaria), Alevi Bektashi religious songs, and the music of traditional rituals from all parts of the region.However, Kalan also produces and releases contemporary folk or fusion music such as the guitarist Erkan Oğur, the controversial Grup Yorum, the popular Yansımalar, or soundtracks of Turkish films.
