TAYFUN GUTTSTADT's (Guttstadt Music) album is finally here and is called "Tarâpzâde". His album is a look into a cultural conglomeration that would generally pass for Middle Eastern. But Tayfun Guttstadt does not take a one-dimensional view of a world shaped by cultural exchange. Three texts are his, the rest are stories handed down over several hundred years. He sings in Turkish, the poets are often Alevi, the instruments are sometimes Arabic and sometimes Persian, the imprint of his album is always multi-ethnic.
