"I feel ashamed, ashamed of being poor, ashamed of being naked to others. My seedlings are cold, my harvest is impoverished. I am by myself within brotherhood, works, unity, atoms bombs, world of poets and scientists. By myself and far away. I am Anatolia, do you know me?"
Hayatta her şeyin bir hikayesi vardır ve ben genellikle insanlara hikayeler anlatma eğilimindeyimdir. Anadolu müziğinde sevdiğim şey, içinde çok fazla kültürün, metaforun ve hikayenin bir arada bulunması. Anadolu müziğinin ana figürleri genellikle düşünce insanları ve şairlerdir. Bu insanlar o kadar yeteneklidirler ki birkaç sanat dalını aynı anda icraa edebilirler. Bu kadar özel insanlar için ne yapabilirsin ki? Tabii ki insanların onları tanımalarını sağlarsın.
In life, anything has a story and I usually tend to tell people stories. The thing I like about Anatolian music is there are so many culture in it, so many metaphors and stories. The main figures of Anatolian music are commonly men of thought and poets. They were very talented that they could do a few forms of art. What would you do for such special people? You'd let people get to know them.
