Mercan Dede & Istanbul Tribe+The Secret Trio
Making his first local appearance in a decade, Dede (AKA DJ Arkin Allen) is a popular Turkish progressive who fronts a traditional ensemble on turntables, electronics, and occasional ney flute. The concept behind his 2013 double-CD album _Dunya_ is environmental apocalypse. The Secret Trio – Tamer Pinarbasi (kanun zither), Ismail Lumanovski (clarinet), and Ara Dinkjian (ud lute) – play mesmerizing originals and traditional music from Turkey, Armenia, and Macedonian Roma.
