    Balam - Eskilerden

    • Music
    • Soul/Funk/Disco/Boogie
    • Turkish/Anatol
    Balam's "Eskilerden" – which literally means "from the old ones" – brings the sounds and melodies of the past into the present. In her show, Balam presents Turkish music that her grandparents and parents used to listen to, which is still played at weddings and celebrations today, and is known from old Turkish films. Experience the tunes of well-known folk songs and "Gurbetçi" songs, written and sung by Turkish migrant workers in Germany in the 60s and 70s. These songs tell stories of a longing for home, the hardships of labor, everyday racism they faced in Germany, and the sense of uprootedness. Though these songs are old, they hold great relevance today, especially for those who are visibly migrant in Germany, offering many points of connection and identification.

    Less than a year since their previous outing poise, the limitless improvisational experimentalists in bunsenburner returned with a new full-length titled Rituals, set to be released via bensnburner records on August 11, 2023. Rituals is a multifaceted towering monolith constituting of experimental progressive and psychedelic stoner rock with a firm emphasis on ambient and doomgaze elements. The hive-like collective of musicians blend together seamlessly once again through the album’s twelve songs and over fifty minutes’ duration, that not only burns bright the flame of ’something for everyone’ ideals, but coalesces an extreme array of tonalities and stylistic leanings into one coherent image of current contemporary music in its most prime and flowering form. The newfound senses of direction and seamless unison drive the entirety forward in a new kind of way. bunsenburner have mastered the often dangerous regime of balancing on a tightrope between compositional and instrumental prowess and lively humanity filled to the brim with the joy of creation. This leaves a brisk and lasting impression on anyone taking the dive into bunsenburner’s world – a world that you gladly explore with a glimmer of glee in the corner of your eye time and time again.
