30 December – The World’s Biggest Museum
Master percussionist Burhan Ocal will be accompanied by the Borusan Quartet at a special New Year’s Concert. Ocal has made the bridging of musical cultures his central mission. Excelling in the traditional vase-shaped darbuka drum, thebendir, and the kettle drum, Ocal blends jazz improvisation with funky hip-hop and groovy Oriental rhythms. A prominent chamber group of the Turkish music scene, the Borusan Quartet is renowned for their reinterpretations of timeless classics. The concert is at 7.30 p.m. at the Sevgi Gonul Auditorium at Koc University.
