Her songs unfold ancient stories of Anatolian love and mystery. Of Turkish-Kurdish origin, Olcay now lives in London, where her Western vocal training collides perfectly with her passion for the rich musical heritage of her Anatolian homeland, allowing her to craft intricate and unusual melodic phrases, distinct harmonies and captivating, richly-layered textures. Her sensitive portrait of Anatolian culture sketches shade and light on the region’s fascinating musical interplay.
