Turkish violinist, Kusadasi, Turkey at My Favourite Planet

Many tourist hotels and restaurants in Turkey offer live music evenings. The quality and type of music on offer varies considerably. In addition to the traditional local folkloric entertainment it has become usual in recent years for music groups to play a mixture of popular modern Turkish and western hits with modern instruments. The versatile electric piano can be made to approximately emulate many instruments and moods, including a range of backbeats, keeping the number of musicians and overheads for a band to a minimum.

Savvy performers tailor their programmes to suite the tastes of whichever nationality presents the bulk of the evening's audience (Brits, Americans, Germans, Italians, Scandinavians...).

Some singers have memorized a large repertoires of foreign hit songs without knowing the respective languages or having the least knowledge of the meaning of the lyrics. What counts, it seems, is that a song is delivered with feeling and gusto.

A typical restaurant music programme begins with relatively downbeat tunes while the guests are dining, and things get louder and faster later in the evening to get everybody into party mood and onto the dancefloor.
