5.0 out of 5 stars Entrancing, 4 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Kula Kulluk Yakisir Mi (Live I (Audio CD)
I fully endorse the official review on this page. This is entrancing music with a violin type instrument combining with a lute type instrument to fashion improvisation of the highest calibre. And all before a sensitive Turkish audience. ECM have done themselves proud. World music album of 2013 for me!

This review is from: Kula Kulluk Yakisir Mi (Live I (Audio CD)
Kurdish Iranian master kamancheh player Kayhan Kalhor previously collaborated with Turkish baglan player Erdal Erzincan with a series of improvisations on The Wind (also alongside Ulas Özdemir on divan baglama) and the two have teamed up once more for this live recording of a 2011 concert in Bursa.

There are improvisations as on The Wind ("improvisation" in this musical milieu not being making it up on the fly but utilising a repertoire of melodic sections - indeed the beginning of the first improvisation which opens this disc will be very familiar to those who have heard the opening on The Wind), plus traditional pieces of which from the names, all but one ("Gol nishan") are Turkish, and the title track (translating as "It is unseemly to follow someone slavishly") which appears to be a modern composition as is one composition by Kalhor & Erzincan called, surprisingly enough, "The Wind".

The recording quality is excellent, there is some audience applause including some mid-track in one or two places but it's not massively obtrusive. The booklet is minimalism itself with a track listing and photo of Kalhor & Erzincan.

5.0 out of 5 stars How unseemly it is to follow anyone slavishly, 9 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Kula Kulluk Yakisir Mi (Live I (Audio CD)
Of a flurry of fascinating cross-cultural projects ECM has released as summer heads south, "Kula Kulluk Yaksir Mi" (which translates apparently as "how unseemly it is to follow anyone slavishly") is arguably the most fantastic. Recorded seven years after the duo's first collaboration "The Wind", this live performance in Bursa is a heady brew of the ancient and the new, tradition and improvisation, the engaged and the removed. The kamancheh (spike fiddle) is so innocuous to look at, one can hardly below at the power of the sound which emanates from the hands of Kalhor (witness the fifth numbered improvisation where Kalhor really soars against the more delicate, harmonics of the baglama). Although the recording is compelling throughout the closing medley of intertwining melodies constitutes my highlight and is simply music of the highest order no matter the genre(s). A highlight of 2013.

That's where two worlds meet, and KK brings one to the other here with panache and elegance. Just let it roll over you.

Yet again the wonderful ECM label have managed to stretch our musical boundaries with a superb recording by an Iranian Kamancheh player and a Turkish Baglama player. If you enjoy exploring 'World Music' then you won't be disappointed with this.
