The Mehmet Polat Trio is a spiritual yet adventurous meeting of three masters of their magical instruments: oud, kora and ney. With roots in the Ottoman, ancient Anatolian, and West African music traditions, the trio welcomes you with its musical authenticity. The original compositions are colored by daring improvisations and grooves, presented in an atmosphere of chamber music. The Mehmet Polat Trio invites you to a sincere musical journey from the past to the present.
