Since 1993 four young musicians occasionally played together in a variety of activities in Çanakkale where the wind never stop to blow. In 1995, the band took the name of İHTİYAÇ MOLASI and began to play their own music in Istanbul and soon they became one of the favorite groups of Istanbul.

Turkey? A democracy? On what planet? Surely not here on earth!
 
Not on your planet? Which earth are you in?
We won't learn Democracy from counties has lower than 60% voting rates.
That cover art reflects the spectrum of dealing with home confinement, it would seem.
Interesting music by an obscure band, I like it 
Absolutely love incongruent instruments, techniques and styles!

Yes, unfortunately they are..  Their violinist is my friend actually and hearing this song on RP reminded me of a very beautiful memory out of the blue:

He and some other quite good musicians were jamming on a volcanic beach in Imvros (tr: Gökçeada, an originally greek, now turkified island in the north Aegean) while the sun was setting and we were just dancing and hanging around in a bliss. Thank you RP for resurfacing this! 

 p.s: Turkey (and around) is home to many many exquisite musicians such as 'İhtiyaç Molası' for ages now and never-ending political / religious turmoil surrounding this geography seems to fuel this need for good music.  
 Mushing I agree there is a lot of fine music in the Middle East

A different sort of Cengi

I feel like I am watching a Cirque Du Soleil performance
Shades of Luce - Bring Her In

Album art by Randall Munroe at age 5. {#Nyah}

And we get scoldings from the plunderers of the New World too!. You call us the thieves but has anyone stole as much as Spain?

 
There is NOT ONE country in the world which has NOT committed horrible crimes against humanity.

For centuries many many countries have exploitet humans in the slavetrade, killed them in wars, committed genozide AND in many courntires THIS IS STILL HAPPENING!

If one does sit in a glasshouse, one should not throw stones!

Take a good look at your own history in EVERY country the listeners here belong to, there have crimes being committed in the past and nowadays.

So, hush everyone - if you want to call another human a killer -  look in the mirror first!

 
Awesome album cover.

Calling yourself a republic doesn't make a country a democracy. The Soviet Union was a "Union of Soviet Socialist Republics". At any rate, democracy is an absolute to be striven for, and no country is quite there yet, regardless of what it calls itself. End of political rant.

Perhaps you are right, ignorance is universal.
And so is the desire to have good music, unless you are:- ohhhh, the list is endless.

Cover art timeline kickstarts with Anno Domini.
A Spiterman spun and  I guess Adam  still delves. A-political stance? otherwise B.C would suffice.

Iraq is now a republic. Iran is a republic (though it's a weird one). Afghanistan, Pakistan and the rest of the "...stans" are Islamic republics. North Africa is Arabic/Islamic; and Egypt, Libya, Algeria, and Morocco are all republics. The biggest Islamic nation by population is a democracy: Indonesia has about 220,000,000 Muslims.

Another completely new (to me) group - nice one Bill!

I thought this was one of few that RP plays...

Surprise, it's a new to me group...

I like this enough to stop what I was doing to rate it and comment.  Plus it made me ball dance! {#Dancingbanana}

Hold the music! Let me put my Prince Of Persia attire {#Drool}
Before I looked at the name of the artist, I played a stretch-the-brain game and tried to deduce it by just listening to the music and cross referencing.  Of course, I quickly ran out of candidates. Not American, not western, never heard anyone with that sound style. I could sit here all month and not pull out this one.  Another first hearing on RP. 
 
Should be heading to bed, but you just keep playing awesome music, like this. Sleep can wait, there's music to be danced to.

In punk yoga be doubled!  We be dancing!  This is groovy...

It feels so weird to have missed your own people's music and have stumbled upon in on an foreign radio station.
 
My thoughts exactly :))
Coooool!
Oh this is a niiice groove! {#Sunny}

Ooh, liking this. Can't believe the average rating is as low as it is. {#Eh}
Wow, this is cool... Digging on the tight rhythm section, and the rest of it as well..




Oh yes indeedy.
1999? That explains a lot. A lot of that sort of western/exotic fusiony neo-metal/disco thing. 5.
Another Turkish delight.
yeah, this is pretty good.
What is this??  I love it!!
Dig the album art!
Nice.
