Thursday, time for a remake.
"Türkü" is a tune by the legendary Turkish rock musician Erkin Koray and was released on the second album "Elektronik Türküler" (Turkish pronunciation: [ˈelectɾonic tyɾˈcyleɾ], "Electronic Ballads"), originally released by Doğan Plakcılık in 1974. This is his first work to be recorded for the LP format, as opposed to the 45 rpm singles which his output had been restricted to until the mid-1960s.
"Türkü" is Turkish, could be translated to "Folk Song", "Ballad"
The remake is made by Sydney's NUMIDIA. The tune was released on the self-titled debut album "Numidia", released January 7, 2019. NUMIDIA is a quintet that forges influences from Middle Eastern/North African Blues and blends these calming tribal elements with Folk and 70’s Psychedelic and Progressive Rock, gives a touch of exoticism and magic that, surely, will surprise the listener. With three guitars that neatly works together as one and makes the album really fun to listen to.
