Just recently, the West got to know about Cüneyt Sepetçi through the album release on the label of Heather Trost and Jeremy Barnes (aka «A Hawk and A Hacksaw»), and as a guest on their 2018 album «Forest Bathing». However, the clarinet virtuoso has long been an icon of modern party and wedding music in his native city Istanbul. In 2017, he recorded his second album with some of the city’s best musicians; he plays crazy solos on the synths and microtonal keys of Volkan Sever, while two drums, violin and the wind instrument Zurna complete this Turkish Delight! Hossa!
