Baris K – 200

Baris K compiled and edited a series Turkish Disco Folk & Psych classics in the Istanbul 70 album back in 2011. He’s also part of the Insanlar, a psych-folktronica band shared here before. Read his RBMA Radio bio.

200 is his original production on which he worked with several musicians and singers to highlight the message for equality (of the sexes), a hot topic in the present-day Turkey facing the bigotry seeded in backward political and religious boundaries. Juno records released it in late 2013 (remember the Gezi Park demonstration that started a week less than exactly two years ago?) after the authors unsuccessfully tried to publish it elsewhere for 5 years.
