Cyminology feat. Korhan Erel and Martin Stegner - Ceviz Ağacı

from by Korhan Erel



Korhan Erel's first collaboration with ECM band Cyminology in Munich in 2015. Ceviz Ağacı is a poem by the wonderful poet Nazım Hikmet, where he describes the awkward moment as he climbs up a walnut tree in Istanbul's Gülhane park to avoid capture by the police. His girlfriend, with whom he had agreed to meet under the same walnut tree, comes and does not see him up in the tree.

Nazım Hikmet was a communist and was imprisoned by the Turkish government, finally having to escape to USSR. He died in Moscow.
