One of Turkey’s most beloved artists, singer/actor Müslüm Gürses helped popularize a form of traditional folk music called arabesque.

∙ At age 16, Gürses landed his first hit with the 1969 single “Sevda Yüklü Kervanlar,” which sold over 300,000 copies.
∙ He went pop with 2006’s Aşk Tesadüfleri Sever, a collaboration with writer Murathan Mungan that included covers of songs by such artists as Bob Dylan and David Bowie.
