Ziya Aytekin - Ziya Aytekin (LP)
Swedens immigration laws has seen better days, and in times of political turmoil at least we have some good examples to look back upon when it seemed that the world was merging together over distances rather than cramping for space.
Turkish musician Ziya Aytekin came to Sweden sometime in the late 70's and played with Okay Temiz and Orientexpressen on a number of releases. This however is his only solo recording, and it's an uncompromising ride into traditional dance music. Full of feverish trance-like rhythms and the unrelenting jazzed out tones of Aytekins different flute or horn instruments (many of which he reportedly built himself).
