İSTANBUL EKSPRES FESTIVAL '22

Yasak Helva . Electric folk

Yasak Helva consists of three musicians with very different musical backgrounds: from death metal and grunge via jazz and pop to arabesque and Turkish folk music.

They call their music electric folk and can be recognized by the unique sound of their cümbüş, a mix between an ud and a banjo, which they rock hard.
