Humbug x Jazzhane present: Santi & Tuğçe (PRY, TUR, DE) // ELEKTRO HAFIZ (DE TUR) // Afterparty
✺ Santi & Tuğçe
In a world of constant change and chaos, it is becoming clear that the established narratives are no longer working. What we need now, perhaps more urgently than ever, are new stories to fill the void: stories that can connect and inspire us with a shared vision. Santi and Tuğçe are here to weave new myths for our times in a language that most directly touches the human heart: music. Santi (from Asunción, Paraguay) and Tuğçe (from Istanbul, Turkey) have been road companions and musical partners for more than a decade. Currently based in Berlin after many years of living in the US where they first met, they each bring a vibrant mosaic of influences and ideas from all over the world: soulful melodies, colorful instrumentation, dreamy harmonies, and surgically engineered dance-floor beats. To this date, they have performed in many major electronic and world music festivals, clubs and concert halls throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America and received critical acclaim worldwide. In 2022, Santi & Tuğçe received the “Best Electronic Music Artist” Award at the prestigious 19th Radio Bogazici Music Awards in Turkey.

Born and raised in Istanbul, Elektro Hafız recently moved to Cologne, Germany. His sound reminds us of hypnotic wedding tunes in border villages of Southeastern Turkey and Elektro Hafız undeniably traces his very own cultural heritage back to Anatolian psychedelic rock. Equipped with the electric Saz (the defining instrument of Anatolian psychedelic rock) and combining it with overdrive-fuzz tunes, Elektro Hafız creates mind-blowing energetic sets. Listening and dancing to his live-set, you will realize how this particular type of music travelled around the world and found its way into the subcultures of many a different region. His provocative style and humorous approach to music tells great stories, particularly those of love and migration. It is up to you to decide whether this explosive dancefloor energy is psychedelic, punk, or an eclectic acid amalgam of diverse genres.

✺Afterparty with Kurt Adam
Kurt Adam, living in Frankfurt for 25 years with origins in Malatya, is renowned for his remixes and edits of well-known (eastern) classics. Mixing eastern classics, eclectic, and Latin tunes with minimal low-tempo motives, he has been relentlessly producing, among others, for Tibetania Records, Garasadah Records, and Kośa. Name aclassic of your choice, whether it is Sade, Michael Jackson, Fairouz, Cesária Évora, Sting, Zeki Müren, Cem Karaca, or Aris San, chances are high Kurt Adam took your favorite jam, redeveloped and remixed it with fine minimal and low-temp motives for the 21st century.
