Hi, I'm Baha. I'm an experienced Oud player for recording and live sessions, also I'm a composer. I've played in albums, soundtracks, theatre shows, live gigs, festivals, etc. I have the equipment to record myself at home. (UAD Apollo twin interface, Lewitt&AKG condensor mics, Logic)
I grew up in Istanbul, the meeting point of two continents, and the prolific melting pot of European and Middle Eastern musical cultures. So, not very surprisingly, I was able to shape a very unique artistic style that embraced both Istanbul music and Middle Eastern music.
I have also garnered attention as the first-ever Turkish oud artist to be invited to play flamenco in Spain and to give a solo recital at Royal Albert Hall. Furthermore, these milestone events were preceded and followed by performances at prominent concert venues in Turkey and Europe, such as Cemal Reşit Rey Concert Hall, Lütfi Kırdar Meeting and Performance Hall and Zorlu Performing Arts Center in Istanbul; Gongora Theatre in Cordoba; and Vortex Jazz Club and Green Note in London. I also performed in festivals like Alamar World Music Fest in Almeria, Yeldeğirmeni Spring Jazz Festival in Istanbul, and Rebetiko Carnaval in London. I recently performed at the Royal Shakespeare Company. I have also done some Oud and Makam Music workshops in Istanbul, London, and Madrid. I have played in some Turkish singers' albums as well as my own album "The Pearl".
I hope I could get an chance to touch your music.
