Info for Toprak

Arif Erdem Ocak is an astonishing Turkish guitarist, one of the founders of the popular Turkish band, Seksendört. He has been a quintessential member of Budapest’s music scene for years. This solo album was written by himself. He combines centuries-old Turkish music with a modern, percussion-style guitar playing.

Arif Erdem Ocak connects centuries-old Turkish melodies with modern percussion-style guitar playing. With his storytelling and melodic guitar tunes that lean into folk, he intimately unfolds personal narratives and universal topics such as (after) life, spirituality, virtue and our common humanity. His songs, melodies, and lyrics cover a gamut of emotions; sometimes a mellow contemplation, sometimes overwhelmingly raw or sometimes melodramatic. Arif creates heartfelt hypnotic songs that get under your skin and takes the audience a journey of reflection, silence and mind fullness.
