Derya Yildirim and Marc Marcovic at Galiläakirche / Saturday 30.04.2021

Tanz in den Mai with a fine double bill of acoustic traditions with Derya Yildirim and Marc Marcovic both performing as part of this springs Kultur am Dorfplatz programme.

The singer and multi-instrumentalist Derya Yıldırım from Hamburg learned to play piano, guitar, ud, saxophone and Bağlama from childhood on. From 2013 to 2016 she studied at the Hamburg Music Academy and continued her studies in the subject Bağlama with Taner Akyol at the University of the Arts in Berlin. Yildirim continually rearranges rich traditional Turkish poetry and carries it into the future without sacrificing historical awareness.⁠ The symbiosis of Anatolian folk music, modern grooves and overtones of psychedelia, jazz and funk has already been hailed as the “new German-Anatolian psycho-pop sensation” (Junge Welt).

Marc Marcovic’s concert performance reflects on the present as a hyphothetical place of longing and coincidence where dualist thinking can be overcome. Accompanied by a classical guitar he improvises in tounges, real or imagined, and transformed with the security of sleepwalking, forgotten melodies, legends. All this to a mesmirising visual backdrop of imaginary landscapes. funded by musicboard berlin gmbh musicboard-berlin.de
