Mehmet Akbas cannot be reduced to one single formula
Music from Anatolia and Mesopotamia, Avantgarde, bel canto, traditional folk song- what singer-songwriter Mehmet Akbaş brings to the stage cannot be reduced to a formula. Mehmet Akbas has found his very own way through Kurdish music: He sings in the local languages Zazaki, Kurmanci, Sorani and Kelhori, as well as in Farsi/Dari, Turkish, Arabic or Armenian - and the languages also indicate the diverse sources of his music. Through his significant ability to improvise and his alterable voice, he is able to combine completely different poles of his music: For example, he combines traditional and modern singing techniques with operatic bel canto style. Western and Eastern elements, folk songs and elements from electronica, ambient, jazz, house or rock and pop do not contradict each other in his music, but enrich and feed each other musically.
