Telluric Music 2008

The Melbourne/Istanbul Sessions is Melbourne multi-instrumentalist/producer Pin Rada’s unique vision of a unification of Turkish and Australian music and more.  He has created a music without boundaries that puts together Turkish, Indian, Brazilian, Armenian and Western instruments in a textured and hypnotic blend.

Pin Rada studied wind and bowed instruments in Greece, India and Turkey, played didjeridoo with Istanbul musicians, and collaborates in Australia with musicians from India, Turkey, Morocco, Mozambique Indonesia and Sudan.
