Turkish Psychedelia meets Electronics
Born from the musical dreams of Istanbul based musician/producer Tolga Boyuk, Islandman represents a fiction character, a music persona, a dreamer composing the stories of a non -existing place…
Islandman performs on stage as an electro-acoustic live trio forma: a unique mix of mellow electronic structures & dance beats with spacey live guitars, backed up by shamanic rhythms.
The mixing idea during the record sessions or in live performances is to bring Turkish Psychedelia or an African roots music reef together with a feeling of the electric universe. The power of the band comes from their perfect balance of electronic structures and acoustical harmonies.
New album January 2020 on Danish Label ‘Music for Dreams’received strong support in diverse corners including album of the week on Worldwide FM, showing the continued appetite of the global music public for the new wave of Turkish Psychedelia.
The diversity of their festival appearances, including Cappadox, Sunbeat Festival, Apple Flower Festival, Istanbul Jazz Festival, Monteux Jazz festival and Boom Festivalus a positive sign towards Tolga Boyuk’s dream of composing universal sounds.
