Undercurrent Sessions presents: Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek
Grup Simsek is a fresh and modern super- quintet which performs an electrified and highly danceable set of Turkish music. It combines Anatolian Folk and modern grooves, often contaminated by hints of Psy- chedelia, Jazz and Funk.

Led by Derya Yildrms hypnotizing Saz and vocals, Grup Simsek deliver their own interpretation of Turkish jewels (by artists such as Selda Bagcan, Bars Manco, Ozdemir Erdogan), but also draw their originality from beautiful compositions and a fantastic ability in improvising. A truly unique musical experience within the scope of todays music scene. Born in 2014, Grup Simsek is an outernational band with members hailing from five different countries Turkey, Germany, UK, France, Italy.

"Their debut EP NEM KALDI kicks off with legendary Ak Mahzuni erif's 'Nem Kald', a groovy lament with killer melodyline, where saz and synth wave through a stream of wah-wah guitar arpeggios. The Graham Mushnik-penned instrumental '3,2,2,3' is a 5/4 psychedelic mover lead by the acid sounds of the organ  a subtle tribute to the architects of Anatolian Rock, Moollar.

On side B, Derya delivers a splendid interpretation of Ă–zdemir Erdoan's song Gurbet. Gurbet is a Turkish word describing a particular form of homesickness: watching from afar as things turn bad in your [And finally,] 'Davet', a Grup imek composition, is a dancy, Saz-lead song likely to shake many dancefloors with emotion. The lyrics are drawn from a poem by Nazm Hikmet, father of modern Turkish poetry."
