A Tribute To Erol Pekcan

Moderator: Hülya Tunçağ
Guests: Nilüfer Verdi, Sebla Pekcan, Ayten Yaraş Pekcan

Visionary drummer and one of the pioneers of the Turkish jazz scene, Erol Pekcan, whom we lost at the age of 61 in 1994, was so much more than an interpreter. With the successful ensembles and orchestras he founded, his broadcasts on Ankara and Istanbul radio stations and his brilliant television programs, he has inspired a new generation of jazz culture amongst younger generations and thanks to him jazz music has reached a wider audience. It is impossible to forget his sweet presentations both at the Parliament Super Band concerts and Akbank Jazz Festival stages, for the latter of which he was accompanied by two seminal figures who are no longer with us, former Akbank CEO and board member Hamit Belli and the co-founder of Pozitif, Mehmet Uluğ.

We will honor the memory of dear Erol Pekcan on the 28th year of the festival with his family and friends.
