Spices from Istanbul
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Mesmerising and lively, Meskhane perform a variety of Gypsy dancing tunes and Turkish folk pieces with members from Bulgaria, France, Denmark, and Scotland, playing kanun, saxophone, oud and Oriental percussion. Between the variety of popular Oriental rhythms, the rigour of Ottoman classical music and the mysteries of makams, their playing flows through many different moods with improvisations within each piece. Meskhane have been touring France, Switzerland, Spain, Bulgaria and Turkey over the last two years and they are now making their first appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe. Guaranteed to blow you away!
