After a very busy couple of months touring in Europe we are now getting ready for our concerts in Budapest, Istanbul and Izmir! I am very much looking forward to these concerts...
On 13th May, in Budapest I will be collaborating with a very talented, silk-voiced Bea Payla as part of the series dubbed 'Divas from Around the World' which is the continuation of a concept by the singer that begun with her 2014 album Nő (Woman).
After this concert, on 14th May we will fly to Istanbul to perform as part of 'Çoğalan Sesler/ Increasing Voices' festival, organised by BGST; at Boğaziçi Üniversitesi Albert Long Hall.
And on 16th May finally we make our way to Izmir!!
You can find the details of these concerts if you click on the dates on my website or on the posters.
Below you can listen to a live recording of a medley we've been performing for a while now.
Enjoy and hope to see you in one of these concerts!
