about

"stating the 'renaissance' of anatolian rock"

"a warmhole to wherever you wanna be"

"ex oriente lux"

- - -

Active since 2001, Istanbul based Ayyuka was one of the first bands looking back at 70ʼs Turkish music to find a new voice. Not caught up in the retromania but reincarnating Turkish Psychedelic within their own sounds, the band managed to develop an unmistakeable unique sound. Inspirations of Dick Dale, John Frusciante and local heroes like Erkin Koray, Orhan Gencebay make their music more guitar oriented but their fascination with film music and improvisation brings unexpected twists within most of their songs.

Right after their eponymous debut on 2007, the band shared stage with Sonic Youth and Johnathan Richman. Heading to a completely instrumental music, their 3rd studio recording “Sömestr” had already become a cult album for record collectors.

Theyʼve collaborated with Orlando Julius, İlhan Ersahin and had guests on almost every album. The new release will be a creative collaboration with Calibro 35 genius Grammy Awarded producer Tommaso Colliva. For every new album Ayyuka is experimenting with techniques of music writing and flirting with genres like afro-beat, funk, dub or arabesque, and the last chapter for this journey came out in October.
