Exploring the deepness of the Voice and Soul... Sounding in total freedom. Using the expressions of loops station, kalimba and poetry. Within these explorations, I created my own musical pieces that I have recorded in my debut album OZEAN. It was released on 18th February 2019 by Whatabout Music Label in Barcelona.
"The debut album from Turkish singer Nihan Devecioglu. Eleven beautifully crafted songs created through electronic processing of the voice and other experimental sound sources."
Early Baroque Music meets Mediterranian Traditional Songs
Greek, Sephardic, Calabrian, Lebanese, Turkish, Apulian, Portuguese, Armenian traditional and improvised music
The Mediterranean region as a cultural melting pot: along with baroque music by Cavalli, Grandi and Rossi, traditional Sephardic music, songs from Italy, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon and Armenia as well as Portuguese Fado are performed. The viola da gamba as the instrument of the finest sensitivity is grounded here by traditional music of the Mediterranean: Friederike Heumann and the Turkish singer Nihan Devecioglu explore together with the Catalan lutenist Xavier Díaz-Latorre new means of expression of Mediterranean soundscapes - as sensual and beguiling as the spices and scents of the Orient.
Nihan Devecioglu and her Band "the Single Camels" tell stories from all around the World. They connect traditional sounds with new Music and take the Audience to a magical journey from Catalonia to France, from Napoli to Bosphprus, from Greece to Armenia.
Nihan Devecioglu gemeinsam mit ihrer Band "The Single Camels" erzählen sie Geschichten aus der ganzen Welt, verbinden traditionelle Klänge mit neuer Musik und entführen den Zuhörer von Katalonien nach Frankreich, von Neapel bis zum Bosporus, von Griechenland nach Armenien.
In this musical and poetic journey, the Turkish singer Nihan Devecioglu and the Israeli cellist Sasha Agranov, create a magical fusion of their soundscapes.
They create a personal and unique fabric, mixing experimental, classical, traditional Turkish, Jewish, Middle Eastern music, ancient music with own poetry in Turkish and Hebrew.
Nihan Devecioglu &
Tànit Navarro (Catalunya) and Nihan Devecioglu (Turkey) are two singers with a long history in the world of singing and artistic expression. In this vocal duo they join their musical paths to offer us a journey through songs and stories from various cultures (Sephardic, Turkish, Galician Arabic, Catalan ...) and their own linked compositions of soundscapes created from listening to the moment and space that make each concert unique and unrepeatable. The naked voice is the center of this concert woven with sensations and emotions. A journey of connection with the depth of the soul and with the music that emanates from it.
