WHO IS SEYYAH?
Based in Istanbul, musicians from different countries cultivate the repertoire and inspirations of their musical journey. Founded in Strasbourg, France in 2017 by singer Ceren Kaçar, multi- instrumentalist Ozan Demir and violinist Gabriel Meidinger, Seyyah has lived through numerous musicians and countries already. Seyyah's music is a reflection of these journeys and encounters through the prism of traditional music from Asia Minor, the Balkans and beyond.
Members of Seyyah are highly active in Istanbul's folk scene; most notably so as part of the 'Kadıköy Sessions', a collective which promotes traditional and folk music through events and festivals.
