Venue:J1 (seated reduced capacity event)

Described as “one of the finest, most intriguing singers on the British world music scene” by The Guardian, Olcay Bayir brings her unique style and powerful vocals to Cambridge Junction for her first show in the city.

Featuring an international band of some of London’s finest, expect a dynamic and rhythmic live set that focuses on a deeply rooted yet contemporary approach, where irresistible grooves and sophisticated arrangements showcase ancient poems and original music in Turkish, Kurdish, and Armenian to reflect Bayir’s rich Anatolian heritage. Born in the historical city of Gaziantep near Turkey’s Syrian border, she moved to the UK as a teenager and went on to train in opera before going back to her roots with her first album Neva (Harmony).

Her second album Rüya (Dream) was in the Top 50 of World Music Charts Europe. Olcay Bayir has been supported by the PRS Foundation’s Women Make Music fund, as well as being among 40 artists selected from hundreds by Help Musicians Do It Differently fund to support the release of a new EP “Inside” through lockdown.

 

 

Concert supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
