April is Turkish Pop month at
Radio DavidByrne.com:

[from D.B.] "Turkey straddles Asia and Europe, and the music — at least to my ears — contains elements from both continents: Greek and Balkan melodies from the West, and Iraqi and Kurdish influences from the south and east. (There are popular Kurdish singers in Turkey despite political problems between the Kurds and the Turks.) But of course, in a cosmopolitan city like Istanbul, all of these elements fuse to evoke a funky yet haunting mood that that is entirely unique."
