BaBa ZuLa pushed the classic Turkish psych sound of the 1970s, also known as Anatolian rock, forward into the 21st century with Eastern influences creating a unique psychedelic sound.
In recent years we have noticed a resurgence of Turkish psychedelic rock, not only in Turkey, but in Western Europe. We consider it important to make an approach to this musical movement through the music of BaBa ZuLa and the musical heritage of Turkey.
Over a period upwards of 20 years, BaBa ZuLa have released over 10 albums and taken their mind-blowing live performances across five continents.
Their groundbreaking songs can lead you to a different dimension, where time has a different pace and feelings bloom freely in a ritualistic celebration of freedom of expression.
Liberation may be the feeling one experiences after a BaBa ZuLa concert. As lately we’ve been forced to keep indoors, a feeling of liberation is something most of us need and desire. Let’s allow the music of BaBa ZuLa to free our minds.
Join us on our musical journey with the musicians of BaBa ZuLa through the streets and corners of the ancient capital of Constantinople.
