ERKIN KORAY

WRITTEN BY
Mike Powell

Koray was from Turkey, a country where rock music didn't flourish until the mid-1960s, and even then was slow to get widespread acceptance — on a few occasions, Koray was even stabbed in the streets for his long hair. His music — including 1974's standout Elektronik Türküler — blended fuzzed-out American psychedelia with elements of Turkish folk and Arabesque, a Turkish take on Arabic music. In 2011, his singles and rarities were compiled by AnCo fave Sublime Frequencies, a label known for their fascinating compilations of out music from just about everywhere English isn't spoken.
