Altin Gün offer a mix of Turkish folk, psychedelia, funk and rock. After performing in Istanbul with Jacco Gardner, bassist Jasper Verhulst became fascinated by the Turkish sound of the 70s, when artists like Selda, Baris Manço and Erkin Koray combined traditional music with western rock. With bandmates Ben Rider (guitar) and Nic Mauskovic (drums), Verhulst found Turkish musicians Merve Dasdemir (vocals) and Erdinc Yildiz Ecevit (vocals, saz, keys) to revive this sound. Jungle by Night's percussionist Gino Groeneveld joined the group and the band was complete. Their long awaited debut album will be released in March 2018.
