Cult arabesque singer on club stage
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily NewsFamous Turkish arabesque singer Müslüm Gürses is due to make a rare stage appearance at club Ghetto, Feb. 4. The concert starts at 10:30 p.m., with tickets available from Biletix booths.
Müslüm Gürses was born in 1953 in Şanlıurfa, Turkey. His talent and unique style have given him an original position among arabesque singers. In his songs he mostly expresses sorrow and painful feelings, and he is considered a cult figure in Turkish arabesque music, with a very dedicated group of fans, who call him Müslüm Baba (meaning ‘Papa Müslüm’ in Turkish). He later drew a broader fan base by moving into pop music. He has released 71 albums and acted in 38 films so far.
The tickets for the Ghetto concert are divided into two categories. The first category tickets book a table for 95 Turkish Liras, including a special dinner menu. The second category tickets are 45 Turkish Liras for a standing position. Students receive a 10 Lira discount on second category tickets.
