Istanbul Oriental Ensemble - "Grand Bazaar"

[Network 495114]

The world's largest covered market vibrantly brought to life by the stunningly good Istanbul Oriental Ensemble who this time bring us a new line up that features a new wave of conservatory trained young musicians playing music from the Ottoman tradition given a fresh zip of youth. At the helm is Turkish master percussionist Burhan Ocal leading the way in this glorious tapestry of music that incorporates clarinet, fiddle, ud and kanun. You just never want it to end.
