Ud player-composer Mehmet Polat brings together outstanding jazz musicians to form a brand new constellation of ud, drums, upright bass and accordion. After years of international touring with his ensembles inspired by the rich musical traditions of The Middle East, Africa, India, Europe and the Balkans, Polat is seeking out new jazzier ground for his modal jazz forms compositions. As always, Polat likes to leave plenty of room for improvisations in his pieces, resulting in an adventurous sound and a rich audience experience.
