Music Tuesdays - Semaname by Mercan Dede

Mercan Dede (pronounced mehr-john day-day) is a Turkish DJ/producer to makes some fairly cool sounding music. I got one of his albums on my trip and I'm looking for some good songs for future Music Tuesdays. I don't know what kind of music this is - house music? I feel like this might be up Scott's alley.

  1. I would call this music cultural trance? It sounds as though 90%+ of the instruments used are traditionally Turkish. And, if you had to relate it to the electronic scene, I'd go trance as the sound is relatively constant, but if you pay attention, you'll slight movements in melody and rhythm throughout.

    Trance isn't really my thing (I'm too ADD to appreciate it, I think), and I was a bit thrown off by the voice in the song, so this only gets 2/5 'Happy' Faces.
