Proud and humble to present you our first recorded track with Dragonfly – Ecstatic Dance Band: “Into the Unknown”
I feel excited to announce a new project I was asked to join: Kaleidoscope – a healing sound experience, with Peter Wilms and Petro van de Pas. Here is a videofragment of our very first musical meeting last week!
Review Mehmet Polat Trio bij Jazz Fest Amsterdam: highlight of the evening!
Sophie Conin van Jazznu.com
“The Mehmet Polat Trio showed one of the most unexpected arrangements of the evening: ud (Arabic lute), kora (Malian string instrument) and ney (Persian flute), no wonder it was difficult to enter the hall. Normally after one or two songs some audience goes out, but those who wanted to come in after the start of the concert had to show patience, but once inside it was more than worth the wait … In one of the most intimate performances of the evening, this trio provided spheres and sounds that mixed with traditional folk music from all over the world and with improvisation and jazz influences. All instruments were played with craftsmanship, finesse and subtlety. For this reviewer, the highlight of the evening. ”
