Near-eastern + eastern-European mayhem
“best band since Beatles!” – Dalai Lama
“The walls are made of songs and the floor dances” – Rumi
The Turbans is an international musical collective bringing together exciting traditional near-eastern and eastern-European styles and original compositions, to create a modern and energetic performance with reverence for its ancient roots.
Grown from the intertwining paths of intrepid musical adventurers from Turkey, Bulgaria, Israel, Iran, Italy, Greece and England, many of whom were already famous in their own countries, this extraordinary project has grown in a few years into a cult name on the international festival circuit. Its members have gathered from all over the world to perform in major concerts and festivals in India, China, Turkey, Europe + all over the UK.
The Turbans is independent and run by the musicians themselves, bringing music to the people, young and old alike, mixing vibrant spontaneity and authenticity with multi-genre instrumental and vocal excellence.
“We’ve created The Turbans, now all you have to do is dance!”
