Get ready for a jam session that is rich in texture, relaxing and soothing to the ears. Some say, its healing meditation for the soul that becomes part of your life. Askin, working together with Golden Turk Awards winner O. Faruk Tekbilek, approaches Brian Keane to mix the album and provide additional orchestration and guitar. Brian is 13 time Grammy winning record producer, and has scored an Academy Award winning documentary among 6 other Oscar nominated films. This album compilation is original and loaded with talent! The production is the first time ever having a mass variety of Artists to produce an Album together. They are all genuine musicians, showing the world that music is Universal Language.

The five year long project, started with Askin Serbetci - Executive Producer, realizing the quality of the melodies and compositions and envisioning the instrumentation. His goal was to hear the music played by a huge ensemble band and having only the best well known Artists in the industry. Every instrument is featured throughout the tracks. His philosophy of, "Music is the Art and Science of sound vibrations" has made him work hard to raise the level of music to make it’s best. Each track takes you to a journey, and takes you to memories of loved ones. The style of unique musical texture will also relax your mind and release the stress and actually feel relieved.

You are listening to the instrumental original version of the songs. Askin plans to meet with popular Artists from around the world to release the songs in different languages like, English, Turkish, Spanish... He feels that will serve to the fans that prefer to listen to an alternative in their native language.


I would like to thank my musician friends with the production of my new album release. Especially my friend that became my brother, Omar Faruk Tekbilek. He encouraged me to produce the songs and inspired me to get'r done. He played the Nay (bamboo flute) to the songs. His breath gave the music life and gave it a whole different dimension. He offered and opened the doors to his back yard with all of his musician friends and connections he's established over his career. I also want to thank my friend that added the beauty of the sound vibrations with his totally Pro Kanun playing and emotional, crying Keman (violin) playing. Then came World famous Oud player: Ara Dinkjian that completed the Turkish Sanat Music orchestra.

My new friend which I never thought possible! He is a Hollywood star, Brian Keane for the Awesome mix job! Also my brother and awesome darbuka player Murat Tekbilek . My new brothers for Nashville, NC Christopher Rosser, River Guerguerian and 8 Grammy Award winner Eliot Wajdopian. Keith Chirgwin for the awesome master job. I Also wanted to thank My Guitarist Burak Yorulmazlar for the inspiration of feeling while wrintg these songs... Without them this album would never have become possible. Thank you all for all of your support. I would especially like to thank my friend, my brother Ersoy Yildiz with Yildiz Medya for his continuos support and courage with the album and creative album cover design concept. Also to thank my great friend and musician Master Disc Jockey, DJ.TURK Mehmet Arican, for his feedback and support...

I would also like to thank my friends and fans for your support. This is just the beginning of this album. We are now working with various artists from around the world to license the songs in both Turkish and English versions.
