Alp Bora – Amber Born in the European city of Istanbul, brought up in the Anatolian city of Ankara and Oriental Baghdad, Alp Bora found his real home in Vienna, where he moved in 1998. Why Vienna? „ Because no where else in Europe, you can find or enjoy the Orient and the Occident with such cultural intensity and harmony under the same roof“ he says. A Turk in Vienna, he feels at ease. Bora is inspired by the musical heritage of Anatolia.

„Anadolu“ in Turkish, comes from the word “ the motherland”, a word that summarizes the essence of this region as the place where many cultures flourished. Thats why he does not claim to sing Turkish songs but rather the songs of Anatolia. With his seductive purple oriental-soul voice, he transports the audience from the current time and place to an oriental world of heros, myths and legends. In his CD Amber Alp Bora gives an overview of this region’s folk music- songs that people of Anatolia hear daily as children from their mothers and grandmothers - while doing housework, drinking tea, right after dinner or sang as lullabies.

Songs that people still like to hear: about bandits, heros, mysteries and passion - and naturally of longing and eternal love. Amber, the fossilized resin from ancient forests, is a beautiful gemstone which often contains strikingly well preserved remains, carrying a scene from a fading past to today. „That’s how I see the songs in my CD”, he says, “as a witness and envoy of the Anatolian culture”. Special thanks goes to Julia Pichler (violin) and Lukas Lauermann (cello), who helped to bring these oriental gems to life with love.
