Mübin & Giano
The mesmerizing melodies and sounds of anatolian folk music meet the rhythms and colours of electronic music.
Rome 2008, a fortuitous encounter brings two apparently distant musicians together: Mübin Dünen, turkish-kurdish folk singer and player of several instruments and Giovanni Paolo Liotta, eclectic producer of electronic music and longtime experimenter.
A desire for a musical fusion is born: the powerful evocative singing of Mübin, the sparking rain of notes of his santur – persian stringed percussion instrument – is enhanced by the warm live tone of analog synthesizers, the beats of drum-machines, the colours of vintage electronica.
The result is a vibrant unique performance: a blend of dreamy uplifting spirituality and underground acid downtempo, a pleasure for the mind and for the body.
