In the fall of 2011 Helm traveled to Istanbul to record with their long time friend and Turkish music mentor, Sinan Erdemsel and with band member, Larry Klein, who moved there several years ago. Helm Istanbul'da includes classical music from the times of the Ottoman Empire, fasıl or popular pieces, traditional songs from the Black Sea and Kurdish traditions, and Turkish Roman. Important contributors to our project include Mehmet Tarkan Yazıcıoğlu on karadeniz kemençesi and Samuel Atchley on Turkish clarinet, Hakan Aliç and Corwin Bell on vocals, and David Two Hawk on riqq.For wholesale orders, please contact us directly.
