Daily, she lives on the island near Istanbul and travels worldwide, searching for mesmerizing music and meaningful stories to tell. Her passion for female music brought her to Turkey, where she started to explore the Turkish female music scene’s undiscovered world. Throughout five years of digging in records and meeting forgot or unrecognized female singers, she also managed to dive into old Turkish labels’ back catalogs. She curated “Turkish Ladies. Female Singers from Turkey 1973 – 1988” (Epic Istanbul) and “Uzelli Psychedelic Anadolu “(Uzelli), both released on vinyl.
