Over the past decade or so, record collectors in Europe and the U.S. have discovered 70s psychedelia from Turkey, where artists including Cem Karaca, Erkin Koray, Selda Bagcan, Mogollar, and Fikret Kizilok remade traditional songs or styles from the country’s middle region of Anatolia with modern instruments from the West—electric guitars and keyboards. I have no doubt there are still plenty of undiscovered artists who created music in a similar vein, but at the same time, I’m glad to see another kind of Turkish music from the 70s, which is only superficially related to psychedelia, getting the reissue treatment. Earlier this year Spanish label Guerssen released a 1979 album by Derdiyoklar Ikilisi—a duo of Turkish emigrants living in Germany—called Disko Folk. The band made its living performing for fellow Turkish emigrants at weddings and “circumcision feasts” (per the press materials). As best as I can tell, the pair made several records in the late 70s and early 80s.
