In past years, my friend Mr Dore Stein, host of the Tangents radio show on station KALW (91.7 FM), San Francisco, California, and Berlin’s Multicult, has lead musictours to Turkey.
Unfortunately, because of recent changes in politics and society, the music tours to Turkey have been suspended. No tours to Turkey are currently being planned.
However, Dore is planning music tours to Greece, so if you’re interested, contact Tangents.
In keeping with his “Tangents“ radio show philosophy of offering “genre-bending radio that explores the bridges connecting diverse musical styles including world and roots music, and creative jazz hybrids,” Dore identifies a wish-list of artists from the most interesting corners of the music scene and is remarkably successful at booking them for his tour.
Most evenings feature live performances.
Although many participants come from the San Francisco Bay area, the tour is open to all interested travelers from anywhere in the world. British and European travelers can benefit from less expensive flights.
Flying from North America, you should depart at least one day before the tour starting date in order to reach the tour departure city for the start of the tour.
Here’s a photo from a past cave concert in Cappadocia:
Tangents Turkey Tour leader Dore Stein states: “Professionals in the music and travel industries tell me the Tangents Tour is one-of-a-kind. There is simply no other tour that organizes concerts with local artists for Westerners. I am proud and honored to be able to produce this.”
When you contact Dore, please mention TTP. Here’s why.
