Ensemble Resonanz / Derya's Songbook

Derya Yıldırım conjures up a special magic whenever she gives a performance on her baglama lute. The musician, who grew up on the Veddel in Hamburg, leads her own Hanseatic-Oriental ensemble that explores the space between psychedelic, pop and trance, and she has been studying for a number of years with the Berlin-based baglama virtuoso Taner Akyol. Ensemble Resonanz, with which she also enjoys a close musical friendship, has now – together with the Körber Foundation – commissioned arrangements of Turkish, Anatolian, Kurdish and Greek songs from twelve composers, or asked them to write a new work for Derya Yildirim: »Derya’s Songbook«, which is premiered at the Hamburg International Music Festival. Her teacher’s trio performs in the first part of the concert.
