Live from Istanbul with Red Bull radio
ISTANBULRed Bull Music Academy’s RBMA Radio is in Istanbul for a 10-day celebration of the city’s vibrant music scene.
Taking place at multi-purpose cultural space Pera 64, the program will feature a wide range of sounds and stories from local trailblazers, international acts and Academy alumni.
RBMA Radio: Live from Istanbul is the latest in a series of pop-ups to have touched down this year in NYC,
Detroit, Reykjavik, Atlanta, Montreal and LA, and underscores the truly global nature of the station by beaming out the best of local music scenes to listeners around the world.
The event pays homage to such pioneers as the 60s experimental rock and pop vanguard Gökcen Kaynatan, 70s folk and protest-music outfit Yeni Türkü from Ankara, triple-gold diva Seyyal Taner and Mustafa Özkent, the “Dr. Frankenstein of Anatolian Pop.”
The Red Bull Music Academy will also present eight events that bring local artists together with such international talent as disco and house specialist Motor City Drum Ensemble, drone artist and one half of Fuck Buttons, Blanck Mass, and eclectic Dutch selector Young Marco. International Academy alumni such as Brainfeeder’s beat maestro Jameszoo and Irish producer Mano Le Tough will also play alongside their Turkish counterparts, Ah! Kosmos, Ahu, İskeletor and Tufan Demir.
