NEAR-EAST + EUROPEAN MAYHEM / WORMFOOD Stage / 3.10 - 4.00 PM
The Turbans is an international musical collective bringing together exciting music from traditional near-eastern and eastern-European styles and their own compositions, to create a modern and energetic performance with reverence for its ancient roots.
Grown from the intertwining paths of intrepid musical adventurers from Turkey, Bulgaria, Israel, Iran, Italy, Greece and England, many of whom were already famous in their own countries, this extraordinary project has grown in a few years into a cult name on the international festival circuit. Its members have gathered from all over the world to perform in major concerts and festivals in India, China, Turkey, Europe and all over the UK.
The Turbans is independent and run by the musicians themselves, bringing music to the public, young and old alike, mixing vibrant spontaneity and authenticity with multi-genre instrumental and vocal excellence.
