Steve Vai visits Turkey again after 7 years
REUTERS photoSteve Vai is in Turkey after a number of years as part of a tour in honor of his 16th studio album, “The Story of Light.” Vai creates a sound all his own by striking a balance between technical ability and poetic phrasing. A contender for one of the most ambitious live albums ever recorded, Vai wrote, rehearsed and recorded the music for the two-disc set during a 32-country world tour. Each song is dedicated to a different country – Bulgaria, Spain and Romania to name a few – and reflects the flavor of each country’s indigenous music. He is set to take the stage on Nov. 3 at 9 p.m. at Istanbul’s Maçka Küçükçiftlik Park.
