Good morning from Istanbul. Naturally, I’m doing my best to soak up the sights and sounds of this huge city. Barış Manço was rock royalty in Anatolia. His mother Rikkat Uyanık was a famous singer in the 1940s, and a couple of decades late, his life in Paris was shaping his formula: a mix of his minstrel roots and the chanson française so popular in France. “What might that sound like?”, I hear you ask. In 1973, he released the whispering ‘Lambaya Puf De’. It translates to something like “blow the lamp out by going ‘puf'”. That’s how Manço rolled. And that instrument you hear throughout is a Turkish saz. Have a great weekend.
