Ümit Besen Essentials

Ümit Besen Essentials

Few artists capture the vibrant excitement of Tarabya's bustling night life as well as Ümit Besen. His 25+ albums pulse with Turkish instrumentals and skilled, quick-paced keyboard rhythms, leading to powerfully passionate tracks with both bright beats and dark, shadowy notes. Besen's 1997 hit, "Unutmaya Ömrüm Yeter Mi", shows his ability to meld mesmerising traditional melodies with deft, romantic piano, making it clear why his songs remain beloved in Tarabya's taverns, even decades after his first performances there.
