 "SOLO" SELEN GÜLÜN (piano, voice)


セレン・ギュリュン(pf, vo) - from イスタンブール


トルコの代表的な現代音楽家であるセレン・ギュリュンは、トルコの魂と西洋音楽の融合ともいうべき音楽で、国際的にも高く評価されている。セレンは既に5枚のアルバムを発表しており、彼女が作曲した音楽はヨーロッパをはじめ、日本、アメリカ、ブラジル、ロシア、カンボジア、モザンビーク等幅広く演奏されている。2016年6枚目のアルバムKAPIをイタリアと日本でリリース。これは、長年コラボレートしてきたイタリア人Marcelo AllulliとEmanuele de Raymondiと制作したものである。ぜひ彼女の演奏のなかに潜むトルコの調べを探しに来てください。


 SELEN GÜLÜN, composer, pianist, vocalist, arranger and educator, works actively in various styles of contemporary music. She has received many awards for her performances and compositions including the Charles Mingus Composition Award, and the British Council Visiting Arts, Creative Collaboration in Music 2003. Her music has been performed in countries around the world including Austria, Germany, Holland, Iceland, the UK, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, France, the USA, Japan, Cambodia, Pakistan, Lithuania, Russia, Mozambique, and Turkey.
