Sen Sen Sen

Selva Erdener, chanteuse
Published by Kalan Müsik
£12.00 / $15.29 / 117.22 TL ($/TL approx)

The soprano/ethnic singer Selva Erdener made a striking impression at the Istanbul Internatonal Music Festival last summer. Yet her glass-cutting, high-octane voice was done scant justice by either the electronics of the stage show or the acoustics of Aya Irini. Released in 2001, Sen Sen Sen puts her in perspective. It’s a vitally personal album, a collaboration with Turgay Erdener – whose Sen Sen Sen, Lorca Tango, Canım and Hayranlığımızın Gözbebekleri are sensually powerful, spine-tingling winners. A selection of folk songs digging deep into ancestral places offer a platform for some remarkably inventive arrangements featuring clarinet, trumpet, guitar, bass guitar, kanun, accordion and string quartet. Artful arrangements that invite you into a whole palace of chambers and emotions, touching the old and familiar, experimenting with the new and the raw, distilling images, suggesting dream-like sounds and colours from the Caspian to the Balkans, the Levant to the Black Sea, timeless village dust to 1930s casino chrome. Tremendous performances, incredible diction, demonstration recording. A brilliant theatrical encounter.
