As far as the music goes, I am in heaven. Before I came, I made a playlist of random songs I found on youtube when searching for “Turkish house music”. It’s been my jam ever since, and I was glad to see that most of these songs are actually popular in Turkey. The songs have a special quality to them that I haven’t heard in other house music. I think I would describe it as wistful. When I listen, I sometimes can imagine myself staring at the sea, waiting for something to happen. Check it out on youtube, and maybe you’ll see what I mean.
