01 April Saturday – Selen Gülün Trio (Turkey)
Saturday 1 April 2017, 8.30pm
For the first time in Australia, Turkish composer, pianist and singer Selen Gülün brings her unique East/West fusion music to the Foundry616 stage.
With the depth and scope of a broad Western music education infused with a stunning integration of Turkish music elements (her ‘ soul’), Selen’s music is reflective, passionate and richly complex. Critics around the world herald Gülün’s music for it’s drama and elegance.
Gülün’s music has been performed in countries around the world including Austria, Germany, Holland, the UK, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Italy, France, the USA, Brazil, Japan, Cambodia, Pakistan, Lithuania, Russia, Mozambique, and Turkey. Gülün has released six albums: Just About Jazz Live (2005), Selen Gülün Trio Sürprizler (2006), Selen Gülün by Selen Gülün (2009), Answers (2010), Başka (2013), KAPI (2016).
Her newest album The Women’s Matinee, born out of her concert series featuring the works of women composers in Turkey, will be released in March 2017. She is currently based in Tokyo.
“In a raspberry mini dress and black high heels, Ms. Gulun led her trio, defying stereotypes in the male-dominated musical world that she inhabits, infusing her works with the serenity of her classical training and the energy of an Istanbul upbringing.” The New York Times & Herald Tribune by Susanne Fowler
