The concert takes place at Protected content - Copenhagen's new powerhouse for border-searching music, born through a merger of Global and Jazzhouse.

Altin Gün means 'Golden Day', and the band also sends the listener even into the golden age of Turkish psych with a warm and groovy expression that both accommodates funky wah wah guitar, sour orgles and passages where music almost assumes a krautrock-like quality.

The band is based in Amsterdam, but unites musicians from both Turkey, Indonesia and Holland. They found out about a passion for the sound of the 70's psychedelic wave, where a number of forward-looking Turkish musicians linked old folk melodies influenced by the acidic sugar. They even mention the Turkish legend Neşet Ertaş as their main inspiration.

Bassist Jasper Verhulst took the initiative to gather the band after being seized by Turkish psych on a trip to Istanbul. In singer Merve Dasdemir and singer, actor and keyboard player Erdinc Yildiz Ecevit, he found two musicians who truly manage to give the music the most authentic sound. Add to it Ben Rider's glowing guitar passager and the intense groove from drummer Nick Mauskovic and percussionist Gino Groeneveld (known as Jungle By Night) and a strong cocktail.

Altin Gün has just released their debut album, 'On', on the company Bongo Joe. Even before the release, they have enjoyed a massive hype all around on European scenes. Among other things. did they play in Protected content the festival Le Guess Who? If you are a fan of Turkish psych, Altin Gün is also one of the absolute best contemporary bids on a band where the deep love of tradition meets a fresh approach. A celebration of a psychedelic party on Protected content is guaranteed when they get past 10th of May!
