Forabandit ()
cdRoots Code: buda-3860223

Singer and mandole player Sam Karpienia is the co-founder of famed band Dupain. Forabandit is "a musical work bridging Occitan and Anatolian traditions" that combines the lyrical tradition of Occitanian troubadours with a contemporary approach. Singer and baglama player Ulas Özdemir perpetuates the song style of the Anatolian wandering troubadours while Bijan Chemirani's Persian rhythms subtly blend with the song of these new poets. Karpienia's deep, emotional, rasping voice and the soft, quiet voice of Özdemir reveal the living poetry of these pieces about love, commitment, and contest



More info:
Forabandit is the musical creation celebrating libertarian poetry from Occitania and Anatolia. Sam Karpienia, singer and mandolin player, uses a contemporary approach to perpetuate the lyric tradition of courtly poetry employed by the Occitan troubadours. His profound and hoarse voice find a powerful echo in the intimate song of Ulas Özdemir, who carries on the tradition of Anatolian asik, a figure of the itinerant troubadour. The Persian rhythms of Bijan Chemirani's percussion mingle subtlety with the songs of these new poets, who reveal all the vibrant poetry of Occitania and Anatolia in a resolutely Mediterranean setting.
