CD Review: Amazing Guitarists From Around The World Celebrate New Releases

Turkish classical guitarist Burak Kaya recently released his latest album "Climate Change." It was recorded in Istanbul as a trio along with Ozan Musluoglu on double bass and Yinon Muallem on percussion and combines the melodic sounds of classical guitar along with Latin and Middle Eastern rhythms. The new nine-song release begins with the finger-picking tempo of "Activists" as all of the songs deal with the global climate change through music. Burak breaks up the melody of "Gezi Park" into three sections, each one giving the music a different tone. The romantic mood of "Emek Movie Theater" just floats along, while "HES Off" has a straight forward approach, running rapidly along like the rivers it is describing. The highlight of the album is the title-song, "Climate Change," which has a dark, bluesy feel to reflect the song's message of how badly our planet has been damaged by big companies.
