Onor Bumbum is one of the aliases of Onur Uzunismail, a
singer/songwriter from Istanbul. He makes melodic electronic music using
computers and various tools he builds and records.

In 2006 Onor Bumbum won a ‘Special Jury Award’ from the Tuborg Roxy
Music Days Contest, a very unusual award for an electronic music act to
get in a rock oriented contest.

He was also one ‘curly’ of the band ’2 Curlies’ -the other curly
being the internationally acclaimed producer/songwriter/oud player Jean
Pierre Smadj-, and released a digital album on iTunes in 2008. The duo
gave several concerts in Istanbul. He also performed with
internationally acclaimed musicians Talvin Singh, Eric Truffaz and
Ibrahim Maalouf.

Onur composed music for several Television/web commercials, and for
fashion shows. He also composed, mixed and mastered albums for Turkish
artists such as, Emir Yargin and Mutlu Son.

In 2009 Onur released ‘Sleeping’, the first digital EP under the
moniker ‘Buggyboy’. The songs on the EP were composed almost entirely by
using a grain sampling virtual instrument he made (Kakalak).

A Red Bull Music Academy participant in 2010, Onur collaborated with
musicians all over the world and played at one of World’s most famous
music festivals, Sonar / Barcelona.

Onur made a very sensitive MIDI drum played with hands and fingers,
heavily influenced by the famous ‘Hang Drum’. He named this instrument
‘Bumdrum’. The demonstration video he made for Bumdrum got popular on
the web and has been shared by various blogs all over the world.

In 2010, Onur released his first CD album, ‘Diyorum ki’ consisting of
ten downtempo, electronica love songs. He toured with his band around
Turkey and played in one of Turkey’s biggest festivals, ‘Efes Pilsen One
Love Festival’ as the headliner of the alternative stage. His band
members are, Fehmi Alatan on Trumpets and Keys, Murat Kirkit on Guitars,
Osman Konuray on drums and Duygu Demir on Cellos.
