Üsküdar’a Gider İken

“Üsküdar’a Gider İken (while going to Üsküdar)”, performed by vocalists Sumru Ağıryürüyen and Zoe Viccaji with an international group of musicians, including a phenomenal kanun (plucked zither) player.

Read about the song here. There’s an influential early recording of it by Safiye Ayla (1907 — 1998) and a weird one by Eartha Kitt.
