The harp, lyre and wind instruments have always been and still are widely used in Turkish music, especially folk music. Arpanatolia brings together singers and musicians playing the contemporary harp and traditional instruments such as the kaval, ney, sipsi and cura to create a new synthesis of traditional Turkish folk music. Unique melodies of ancient times and modern interpretations: Arpanatolia is an unprecedented and beautiful hybrid.
