Mercan Dede - Seyahatname 2001

Format: flac + cue + log
Genre: Sufi, Ethno
Original Release Date: 2001
Label: Doublemoon

"I can't explain in words,"
says a voice a couple of times, in one of the songs. I think the same thing is valid for the satisfaction one gets from the whole albume. Mercan Dede uses the rhythms and the moods present in sufi music, and creates an above-all-feelings music that just becomes an eternal delight to listen. It's important to note that Mercan Dede believes in sufi philosophy and shows his appreciation throughout his original electronic style. For those, who are trying to choose which of his albumes to purchase, I'd recommend 'Seyahatname'. Mercan Dede made two more albumes after 'Seyahatname', 'Nar' and 'Su', released lately. 'Nar' is also recommended highly.
