SEYIR MUZIK

Levent Yıldırım is considered one of the modern pioneers of Middle Eastern percussion. Levent and his older brother Ahmet Misirli are the starters of a musical revolution that opened a new path for future generations of percussionists : they have brought a lesser-known instrument – the Egyptian doholla – into the limelight, and elevated it to the ranks of instruments able to claim a virtuosic solo repertoire.

The result is an infinite variety of sounds coming one after another in total spontaneity. Humility, fluidity and sincerity characterize the music of Levent, mostly improvised, which boldly synthesises the artist’s various influences from the Arab, Turkish, Indian and Western worlds. His third album, Doholla Tarang, invites you to immerse yourself in the intimate charm of Levent Yıldırım.

Press reviews "Doholla Tarang"

In a truly virtuoso and sometimes incomparably fast way, he takes you on a journey that goes from the Middle East and India to Turkey and the more Western music.
