Hakan Vreskala composes the soundtrack of the resistant nature of Istanbul.
He is back on stage for the release party of his latest cd with an explosive band ;revolutionary beats , groovy brass section and incredible percussion shows.
After a musical history started as a punk drummer,continuing as wedding musician and a professional percussionist touring all around the word with established artists ; he put all his heart to his first album ´the village s madman´ there he experiments on the levels of powerful balkan beats meeting with turkish-kurdish softly killing vocals and mindblowing lyrics.His music brings out the positive energy out of the angry crowds feeling neglected,his lyrics reach people who feel alone and weak , his beats invite everyone to the revolution after-party..
