In past years, my friend Mr Dore
host of the Tangents radio
show on station KALW (91.7
FM), San Francisco, California, and Berlin's Multicult, has lead music tours 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
of offering "genre-bending radio
that explores the bridges connecting
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
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
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.
