Signaling a strong come-back by The Liz, Korhan is taking this power trio and their piece “Book of Birds” to Istanbul on November 16. The performance will be at Borusan Music House, one of the leading venues in Turkey for contemporary music. They have been supporting various projects by Korhan since 2011, including concerts with Islak Köpek, David Rothenberg, Cyminology and others.
On the last day of the month, Korhan will play a solo set at the New Adits Festival in Klagenfurt, thanks to the great pianist and singer Ingrid Schmoliner, who is also the curator of the event. Some other well-known Berliners will also be performing there.
