The Breath

Ulaş Özdemir’s second solo album, “Bu Dem” was recorded live with the traditional Alevi-Bektashi dede sazı and ruzba, which are today in danger of being forgotten. The pieces consist completely of deyiş collected by Özdemir and his father. The album, which Özdemir recorded in order to pass Alevi-Bektashi music on to coming generations, gives the impression of having been recorded at a muhabbet, a spontaneous Alevi-Bektashi “jam session.”
