Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul

2005 Rated NR 1hr 30m

Blending the sounds of East and West, Turkey's music encompasses more than just Kurdish dirges and Romany instrumentals, as filmmaker Fatih Akin aptly documents. The country's sonic tableau also includes rap, hip-hop, punk rock and other genres. With German bassist Alexander Hacke as guide, the eye-opening film moves from region to region, capturing everything from neopsychedelic rockers Baba Zulu to street performers Siyasiyabend.
