About Us

Drawing their inspiration from the vast ocean of Turkish music, Melbourne based group Bashka are creating a new genre which slips between east and west with natural ease.
Musically spanning two continents and many centuries Bashka explore the contrast between east and west, composed and improvised, original and traditional, acoustic and digital. Live samples and loops merge seamlessly with ancient acoustic and modern western instruments to create music which brings to life old folk songs, gypsy ballads and dance music from the dirt streets of old Turkey.
