YouTube & Dailymotion videos(Hozan Besir - Gelmis Bahar Gecmis Bahar ...)

Well worth a listen (& look) - I love his style of singing & playing.

Source: www.dailymotion.com - Singer-Hozan Beşir - song 'Gelmiş Bahar Geçmiş Bahar) - there is a live performance which is quite stunning on this site - persevere - video quality not good! (You also have to type his name in at the top of the page to access all his songs on the page which comes up!)

Nice stuff Pauline; what's he singing about - can your husband give us a clue ?
Here's a quick link for anyone else:

I find the prescence of the bloke in the suit a bit peculiar at the start, a financial sponsor/ patron maybe ?

Thanks for the help with the quicker link Chris.

:) the guy in the suit is most probably from the TV Channel - it's rather like that here! Tho' Hozan B appears to be singing in his home (or a very traditional Kurdish setting!)

He's singing about the passing of summer and arrival of autumn or spring - it's likely to be a love song also - I managed a bit of the Turkish but Aydın still away in the Army to help with the Kurdish.

Glad you enjoyed - A. sent the suggestion by text this morning - evidently his saz playing renowned in Turkey. If you can find Ez Kurbana Wan Çavete (sung in Kurdish), also fabulous (ignore the kitsch video, just listen to the singing & playing);-)
