Uzelli Elektro Saz
We love this compilation of rare Turkish electric saz cassette recordings from Uzelli’s vast cassette catalogue. If you want to trace the roots back from modern bands like Altın Gün and Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek, check this out. Recommended by our friends at Stranger Than Paradise Records, you can pick up a copy from them here.
