Described as “one of the finest, most intriguing singers on the British world music scene” (Guardian), Olcay Bayir brings her powerfully touching vocals to NCEM for the first time. Her dynamic and warm music is deeply rooted yet contemporary, where irresistible rhythms and sophisticated arrangements showcase ancient poems and original songs in Turkish, Kurdish, and Armenian, reflecting her Anatolian heritage. Born in the historical city of Gaziantep, she moved to the UK as a teenager and trained in opera before releasing her first album Neva. Her second album Rüya (Dream) featured in the Top 50 of World Music Charts Europe. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
