artworkThis 1967 single features the incredible "Anadolu Oyun Havasi," an infectious instro that's a must-hear!

Cem Karaca had been in The Dynamites and Jaguars before forming his first band Apaslar in 1967. After two years, he and Serhan Karabay (bass) left Apa lar to found Karda lar. By '72, Cem Karaca joined Mogollar before founding Dervisan in '74. He is one of the most important musicians in the Anatolian rock scene.

Psychedelic Surf (Vocal)

Great surf guitar twangs a delightful Turkish melody over a very solid backtrack. Totally infectious and fun, with echoed guitar and exotic riffs. I love this!
