"Like the reinforced silk thread that strings together ethnic neclaces of gorgeous amber, turquoise and coral beads..."
- Thusly describeth 6moons.com Sezen Aksu, the Diva of Turkish Pop.

As much as I dare decide by the one song of hers ("Rakkam")that I've heard, the accolade seems well justified.
I didn't find a separate thread on her. She sure deserves one.
Chime in, say wot kno u!

I have to let you down, again, I'm afraid. I am totally unfamiliar with her. I don't like Turkish music nearly as much as Arabic music, in general. (There's a thread around about some Turkish music I do like.)

Damn, scrap my previous post - and keep adding yours, worldly ILMers.

from the most depressing album in the world
comess, possibly, the only previous ILM mention of Dame Aksu:

2 SEZEN AKSU-HERSEYI YAK,BELALIM,VAZGECTIM (sure most of you don't know it. that is why i wrote them.go on. check them and find the lyrics if you can and try to understand. ý call these three songs the three full stops ...)
-- soothteller (justmadeu...), January 16th, 2003.

I wonder whether soothteller's still around to elaborate a wee bit more?
