Arif Erdem Ocak
Samira’s Blues: A magnetising blend of spirituals and original songs by Samira Dainan, with Arabic, Berber and African roots.
Samira follows the nomadic trail of her ancestors, by living in Morocco’s desert, attending ceremonies in the Atlas Mountains and the Sous and joining Gnaoua lilas (nights) in Essaouira. Back in Amsterdam she writes and composes her songs for her band together with guitarist Bas Gaakeer.
Arif Erdem Ocak, an astonishing Turkish professional acoustic guitarist/sing-songwriter (and founder of the highly popular Turkish rockband Seksendört). Arif combines centuries-old Turkish music with a modern, percussion-style guitar playing. And yet all his lyrics in Turkish, his unique, deep voice and mystic guitar chords mesmerize the audience and draw them into silence. His concerts are intimate and it’s a joy listening to his songs about life, spirituality and our common humanity.
