Müzeyyen Senar Essentials

Müzeyyen Senar Essentials

In a career that lasted well over 70 years, Müzeyyen Senar touched on every aspect of Turkish music, releasing dozens of recordings. Born in 1918, Senar began her musical journey as a child, with the singer's work drawing on traditional, Turkish folk and classical music. Instruments like the Turkish saz, hand drums and swelling strings set the stage, but Senar's voice steals the show in these songs: her deep, rich tones communicating both nuance and naked emotion. Whether you're a Turkish speaker or not, Senar's vast catalogue is an immersive and enrapturing experience.
