IF Performance Hall
Jehan Barbur will be at IF Performance Hall on March 21, 2018. One of the best jazz vocals in Turkey with her calming voice and narrative-laden songs; a songwriter. Born in Beirut and migrated to the southern town of İskenderun in Turkey at the age of 2. Graduated from American Language and Literature, Bilkent University, Ankara and moved to Istanbul in pursuit of her passion for music. Met with Bülent Ortaçgil by coincidence, who admired her songs and paved the way to a contract with Ada Muzik, from which she released her first album Uyan. Songs like “Leyla” and “Gidersen” quickly became hits, putting a smile on our faces. Second album Hayat came in 2010, followed by Sarı in 2012. Travelling between light jazz and pop while flirting with Middle Eastern tunes, Barbur is the embodiment of peace of mind. Her latest album Sizler Hiç Yokken was released in 2014. Barbur is also known with her literary outputs, like stories, poems and essays.
