Baku, June 24, AZERTAC
Turkish singer Tarkan performed on stage during Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
Born in Germany and raised in Turkey, Tarkan has achieved multi-platinum status with sales well in excess of 29 million albums and singles – an achievement made all the more remarkable since only a handful of his songs recorded in his 20-plus year career have been sung in English.
Building upon a solid melodic line based on his Turkish roots, Tarkan's music draws upon influences ranging far and wide, from the timeless, hypnotic sounds of the Middle East to the most up-to-the-moment cutting edge Western rock, pop and dance. Tarkan weaves these diverse melodies and beats into a magical tapestry of sound that is truly all his own. The one constant throughout his music and his live performances is a great rhythm. Today, from Europe to Asia to Australia and Latin America, Tarkan continues to connect with a multinational and multicultural audience in the millions. It's because he has that uncanny ability to write and perform songs that seem to anticipate the mood of his fans, vast and diverse as they are, while at the same time staying true to his soulful Turkish roots.
