Concerts with Şevket Akıncı and Anıl Eraslan in Cologne, Hamburg and Berlin

Korhan Erel will play a series of concerts in Germany with his long-time collaborator from Istanbul, guitarist and composer Şevket Akıncı, and cellist Anıl Eraslan, with whom Korhan has been collaborating in several projects since 2010. Anıl is based in Strasbourg, France for a long time where he has been one of the most active players of several scenes in the city. Şevket Akıncı has been one of the driving forces of improvised and experimental music in Istanbul for the past 10 years, starting with co-founding the pioneering free-improvisation ensemble Islak Köpek with Korhan Erel in 2005.

Korhan, Şevket and Anıl will kick-off their small Germany tour in Cologne on June 17 playing at Labor Ebertplatz with Matthias Muche (trombone) and Brad Henkel (trumpet). Next they will play in the Blurred Edges Festival in Hamburg on June 19 with Gunnar Lettow (prepared bass, objects, electronics), Seijiro Murayama (percussion) and Jean-Luc Guionnet (saxophone) at Centro Sociale.

The three musicians will wrap up their tour with two concerts with Korhan Erel’s Knofi Ensemble in Berlin on June 21st and 22nd. Both concerts will take place at Bonobo Bar in Greenhouse. The first line up on the 21st will feature Matthias Muche (trombone), Gunnar Lettow (prepared bass, objects, electronics). The second evening will see Tristan Honsinger (cello) and Rudi Fischerlehner (drums) play with Korhan, Şevket and Anıl.
