Dolapdere Big Gang, having it’s name known to big crowds with stage performances and having big attraction for every concert, is now in front of you with their second album. The group vocalizes and gives a new sound to world famous pop and rock songs with instruments like violin, clarinette, kanun and with ‘’Istanbul Gypsy style’’ performance. Now the group is getting ready to shake the music market with it’s second album called ‘’Just Feel”. Dolapdere Big Gang was formed about 4 years ago by nine young musicians. Dolapdere Big Gang’s entertaining music invaded Turkish music scene in a very short period of time.

Dolapdere Big Gang performs world famous pop and rock songs with classical instruments like violin, clarinette, kanun and darbuka in a different form. The members of Dolapdere Big Gang describe their music and performance as the following:
“ Because of the location of Turkey, it covers so many different cultures and consequently becomes affected from this structure. We also see the traces of the interaction in music. However, until today it was always our music which was tried to be adapted to foreign music markets and was performed according to their point of views and was also tried to be adopted to their rhythms. What we are doing now is just the opposite. We performed their songs in our own way.

The most impressive characteristic of Dolapdere Big Gang is the instruments used by the group: violin, clarinette, kanun, darbuka… And the style they arrange and perform pop and rock songs, wildly entertains the people who listen them.

Most of the members of Dolapdere Big Gang consist of the musicians who are residents of a very special Gipsy district of Istanbul: Dolapdere. Dolapdere is often called as a “factory of musicians”.

Dolapdere Big Gang’s first album “Local Strangers” was released in December 2006. The second one “Just Feel” was released in December 2007. Both albums have recieved a huge public reaction and acceptance with big sales numbers, lots of concerts, shows and festivals.
