Alaturca Connection is a California based Turkish music band formed by San Francisco's widely acclaimed musicians. Each of our members comes from a different ethnical background and brings musical depth and years of experience in playing a broad repertoire of classical, folkloric and contemporary Turkish, Balkan and Roman songs. The sound is a bridge between modern and traditional.
We perform regularly at community events, weddings, and shows at various San Francisco venues.
We have been an active supporter of social projects. Through our annual signature fundraising event "Gelecege Sarkilar (Songs for the Future)", we work with non-profit organizations and support underprivileged girls' education in Turkey.
