Baba Zula

For 20 years, the legendary Istanbul underground band Baba Zula has been turning heads across Europe with its unique blend of psychedelia, dub and Turkish folk music. To celebrate its two decades of making music that’s both dance-ably crowd-pleasing and restlessly experimental, the band has just released its latest record ‘XX’. Monocle 24 correspondent Chris Frey recently sat down with frontman Murat Ertel in Istanbul to talk about Turkey’s repressive political climate and the risks for those who speak and sing their minds freely.
