Baki Duyarlar (composer, pianist)

Turkish pianist Baki Duyarlar (1967), who is considered to be one of the greatest performers in Europe, presents his high quality music with his extraordinary talent. Though he prefers to record his original music, he also performs a wide variety of tunes on stage. Since Duyarlar, as a composer, does not restict himself to one particular style, he has managed to create his own language in music, which is evocative and harmonic. The compositions that he writes with his fresh and creative perspective do not disregard tradition and carry on the spirits of old times. Baki Duyarlar, who has earned his rightful place among important jazz musicians in Turkey, also casts his spell on his audience.

International music group “Baki Duyarlar OnQ Band” features bass master, the inventive Kai Eckhardt on electricbass, the precise and creative Sean Rickman, and Stanislav Mitrovic, who expands his saxsophone mastery with electronics special effects on ewi. OnQ Band, which has always welcomed musicians from different countries, has earned a reputation as one of Europe’s top bands between jazz and funk. The music ranges from electric ballads to hard core uptempo beats and spaced out moods, with Turkish-music-influenced odd meters. It is a band that sweeps the audience away.

Baki Duyarlar has been active on stage in a wide variety of ensembles, created by himself, all over the years. One of the two ensembles that he works with now is “It Trio” which features the young talent Ahmet Türkmenoğlu on bass guitar, and with his adventuorus style, Ediz Hafızoğlu on drums.This trio that performs acoustic music with such warmth and wit has a repertoire embracing a wide range from contemporary jazz compositions, world music to occasional standards.

In each performance and recording with a multitude of other formations, Duyarlar has shown his versatility. His musical talent, easy-going attitude and great sense of humour have brought him to play with national and international artists such as Randy Brecker, Ada Rovatti, Brian Lynch, Eric Vloeimans, Dick de Graff, Erkan Oğur, Bülent Ortaçgil and many, many others.

His musical collaborations have taken Baki Duyarlar abroad many times. With diverse artists and ensembles he played in Holland, Germany, France, Belgium, Austria, Kazakhstan, USA, Croatia and Oman.

Baki Duyarlar communicates with his audience through his piano, playing music from his heart, conveying his pure and sincere feelings. His music has shown a remarkable power to create bridges and reached the hearts of audiences all over the world.
