maNga performs at İşSanat
ISTANBULHost of the most prominent rock groups of Turkey, İş Sanat’s guest this month is maNga.
Named after the traditional Japanese cartoon art, MaNga comprises Yağmur Sarıgül (guitar), Özgür Can Öney (drums), Efe Yılmaz (turntable), Ferman Akgül (vocal) and Cem Bahtiyar (bass). Consisting of five different characters, five different music styles and five different worldviews, the group released their self-titled debut album on Dec. 14, 2004 under Sony Music Turkey and the GRGDN label.
Selling more than 180,000 copies, maNga’s album, which was also released in Japan, went gold. Traveling through different cultures and meeting many different people, more than four years after their debut album, maNga has entered a new time period with a smoother, more characteristic, warmer and more melancholy sound. With the band members’ growth and changing worldviews, the variety of music they listen to has changed as well.
