A celebration of Turkey


Excellent article by Jon Lusk in today's Guardian about contemporary Turkish music. The World London festival this weekend showcases music from Turkey. Featured artists include Ayse Tutuncu, Goksel Baktagir, Sabahat Akkiraz, and Muslum Gurses, and all those links will take you to YouTube videos.

The World London festival coincides with the tense Turkish general election on Sunday (July 22). There are many Overgrown Path readers in Turkey, and we wish that country a safe, and democratic, election.

My two photos are of polychrome underglaze Yznik tiles in the Mosque of Rüstem Paşa in Istanbul, which we visited earlier this year. You will find more about Turkey by following this path.
