An evening of Anatolian rock with Kurtalan Ekspres and Makas! Kurtalan Ekspres was formed in 1971, named after the train between Kurtalan and Haydarpasa and worked with multiple famous singers like Cem Karaca, Hayko Cepkin, Tolga Akyurt, Bahadir Akkuzu and Baris Manço. The band Makas was formed in 2012 by frontman Sahin, inspired by Kurtalan Ekspres. Makas means scissors in Turkish. The band thinks that people are not puppets and wants to cut the strings so that they can be free in their thinking and doing.
