Melike Şahin, one of the most renowned Turkish artists of the moment, is coming to Eindhoven! Since her debut album "Merhem," she has become an integral part of the big stages in Turkey. She toured the world with the psychedelic cult band BaBa ZuLa, and since 2017, she has been conquering the charts with a blend of pop, psychedelic and electronic music, and influences from the disco scene, with hits like "Deli Kan" and "Nasır." She combines elements from both Mediterranean and Arabic music, and through the use of keyboards, the electronic bağlama, and Oriental violins, a unique style emerges.

On her first solo album, she collaborated with Mabel Matiz, Sabi Saltiel, Uri Brauner Kinrot of Boom Pam, and Dijf Sanders. Melike Şahin's music is innovative but also carries traces of singers who inspire her, such as Safiye Ayla, Müzeyyen Senar, Selda Bağcan, Ümmü Gülsüm, and the Lebanese Fairuz. Melike has also contributed to the soundtrack of the film "Djam."
