his track is awesome because it brings together the constituent instruments of the Turkish Music: the "darbuka","bağlama" and clarinet.

The song's melodies are beautifully traditional but the lyrics are a revolution for Turkey. It talks about how the human soul can be free. One lyric is: "The free soul of the skin doesn't decrease by having sex." Because in Turkey nobody openly talks about sex, this song fits the definition of "New Wave" Turkish psychedelic music.
