About Altin Gun

The Altin Gün band members first encountered this music in various ways: through their
upbringing, via friends or after finding life changing compilations in record shops. Their own
personal discoveries eventually led them to collectively open doors to crowds everywhere
across Europe, from the Into the Great Wide Open festival in Netherlands to Istanbul, from
Ghent to Geneva and from Ravenna to Rotterdam; people all across Europe fell in love with
Altin Gün’s unusual combination of familiar sounds.
Manço, Bağcan and Koray have all influenced Altin Gün, but their foremost inspiration is
Neşet Ertaş, a Turkish folk musician whose musical legacy is invaluable. Comparisons are
almost impossible to make but imagine someone with the same impact and status as Bob
Dylan or George Gerschwin and you’re getting close. Many of the songs he wrote have
become standards in Turkey, national treasures which are cherished up until the present day.
Altin Gün retain the lyrical and thematic structure of Ertaş’s songs, though they often alter
their time signatures and add fuzzy bass sounds, sweltering organ sounds and raw saz riffs.
Ertaş wrote the majority of the songs on the album even if these are hardly recognisable after
all the work Altin Gün have done on them.
