Feeling a bit camera shy


Sumo Ballet is an American pop rock band transplanted into the heart of Istanbul. Formed in late 2014 by front men Matt and Si, Sumo Ballet brings back the fun to the live rock
scene in Istanbul. With a sound that balances the heavy hitting hooks of 90s grunge rock and power pop, the catchy melodies of 00s acoustic rock, and the driving riffs and playful synth of contemporary alternative and indie hits, Sumo Ballet brings together hard and soft, muscle and grace, power and elegance. Its influences span the generations, including an eclectic mix of such classic and contemporary rock groups as Foo Fighters, Weezer, The Killers, The Fray, Arctic Monkeys, and Imagine Dragons.

Filling a void in the local rock scene, Sumo acts as an ambassador of Western rock, giving Istanbulites and expats alike the opportunity to enjoy its original tunes, mixed with
contemporary Indie rock cover favorites. With plans a new EP and plans to tour the local and European rock bar and festival circuit, Sumo Ballet is gearing up for a big year and invites its fans along for the fun.
