SOLD – The Mogol LP – Danses et Rhythmes de la Turquie (1998)

Excellent repro of this cult Anatolian rare groove LP by music legends The Mogol (Mogollar). Their debut from 1971 is a superb combination of traditional and modern music. Although still very much on the traditional side, the use of a classic (and funky) drum kit, organ and electric bass totally fuses with native instruments like saz, Iklig, Yayli, baglama, davul and derbuka. The whole album is a delight to listen to and one groovy track stands out : Sunset in Golden Horn.
