A Soulful '70s Mix Featuring Turkey's Forgotten Divas

Kornelia Binicewicz’s archival initiative Ladies on Records taps into scenes and cultures from around the world, with the aim of bringing forgotten female musicians from the ’60s and ’70s to light. This eclectic mix showcases Anatolian female singers and covers a wide array of styles and emotions—from moody, dark arabesque to upbeat Greek tavern melodies, jazz and psychedelia. Listen here, and for even more mesmerizing Turkish beats, make sure to catch Bariş K, Istanbul’s most renowned digger and mastermind of Insanlar collective, spinning this Friday at Panorama Bar as part of CTM. He’s also created an excellent guide to vintage Turkish psychedelia, which you can read here.
