Alaturca Barcelona is the Turkish Music Band of Barcelona.
Lack of the traditional Turkish Art Music in Barcelona made Turkish singer Güldeniz Akpolat, form an international band with the quanun player; Georgi Dimitrov , aiming to connect both sides of the Mediterranean sea while mixing the party energy of Barcelona with the oriental taste of Istanbul. After sometime, Marta Kurzyca(clarinet), Semih Ali Aksoy(darbuqua), Savvas Salpistis(bass guitar) and Marco Baranzano(oud) joined the project and the band has started to take it's place in world music scene in Barcelona and Europe.
The band has been performing at the important music halls of Barcelona,with the support of the lovely audience since december 2016. They present some Ottoman, classical, folk and gypsy songs with different rhythmic and modal music structures in the repertoire with traditional Turkish instruments such as Qanun, Turkish Clarinet and Darbuqua.
