Mehmet Polat Trio in Acoustic Roots

The Mehmet Polat Trio was our guest in Acoustic Roots on Friday 18 September 2015. This trio is both a spiritual and musically adventurous meeting between three master musicians and their magical instruments; Mehmet Polat Trio
the ney, kora and ud.

This newsletter has unfortunately been
published too late for you to be able to listen
to the broadcast live, but you can always listen
to the programme on demand by going to the programme schedule on our website and
clicking on the link in the programme guide.

The roots of the trio are in the Ottoman,
Anatolian, Balkan and West-African music traditions and the trio is able to adapt these traditions to enhance the original compositions by Mehmet Polat and to create daring improvisations and grooves. And they do this while retaining the warmth and intimacy of a chamber concert. Their first CD Next Spring appeared last year on the Belgian Homerecords label.
