Tarkan in Amsterdam

On Sunday, 14.12.2008, Tarkan held a concert at the Heineken Music Hall, Amsterdam, Holland.

The hall was full, the audience was fantastic, Tarkan was in great shape (although his taste in clothes for the European Tour is contested by many fans), and all in one, the concert was good.

Yours truly was there, presenting you now with the latest pictures and videos.

Interview with Tarkan from Doga Dernegi

Interview with Tarkan and Orhan Gencebay taken from the 1st number of the magazine Doga Dernegi.

The lament of Tuz Lake, Hasankeyf, Allianoi and many more key biodiversity areas comes into being with the song entitles “Uyan” – “Wake up”

The song “Uyan” composed by Tarkan for Doga Dernegi will activate many people who are not yet aware of the danger we face. Gecebay also supported this song with his saz and voice. Tarkan and Gecebay told why and how they got active for nature supporting Doga Dernegi.

Doga Dernegi: First of all how and when did the idea of producing a song for nature came up?

Tarkan: The nature itself asked me to make a song and it gave the inspiration. I oly have become the interpreter of its language. My wish is that the humanity listens to his/her real inner voice and that they do something hand by hand with eachother for the nature, in another saying, for themselves.

DD: “Uyan” is like a global message that sprung out of Anatolia with it’s lyrics and music. What kind of an impact do you think it will have on people?

Tarkan: The people who will listen to this song will hurt a bit inside. “Uyan” aims at people to become aware of the troubles of the nature and will support them to live consciously. This song is very special to me because I composed it for the “nature”.

DD: You say we can solve the problems if we unite. Do you really believe that we can do this?

Tarkan: We can at least bandage up the wounds we caused by trying to do the best we can; we can refresh our hope and protect our conscious. The nature can find a way out for itself anyways; indeed it does not need us…it knows to heal and recreate itself, too. We prepare our won end by destroying it. That’s why “Uyan!” That’s why we need “awakening”, we need awareness.

DD: How do you think the solution can be? what is the way out?

Gencebay: The first solution is not to leave any technological development to progress, which leads to destruction. Then we can help the nature trying to repair its balance on its own by doing whatever it needs.

DD: How did you meet with Doga Dernegi?

Tarkan: well if you ask this question to my heart, it will tell you that everything has to be as it is meant to be and this merge (with Doga Dernegi) is determined by our destinies.

Gencebay: NGOs such as Doga Dernegi, which has dedicated itself to nature, I believe, will play a key role for the solution of this problem. I will always support the institutions and people serving in this field.

DD: I suppose you also think that especially legal mechanisms do not sufficiently value our history and natural richness such as Tuz Lake, Hasankeyf and Allianoi?

Tarkan: I certainly believe so and I want them to put their hands on their hearts and listen to my song often. I very much believe that our conscious fed by the stones and soil of Anatolia will step in at the best time and place.

DD: The corruption in the nature started to change us gradually. Are there such changes in your life?

Tarkan: I have always lived as part of the nature and I still do. I use organic products as much as I can. I try to learn how to settle for the little of everything as nature does. Maybe- most importantly – I try to seem as who I am and be as I seem.

Gencebay: I use the water very carefully, because I know water is life. In the very near future, living in luxury and comfort aside, to be able to live itself will become luxurious for people.

DD: What is in your road map concerning nature?

Gencebay: To talk about these subjects constantly, to use and share the natural values, to continuously warn those who want to destroy the natural balance, to try to stop them.

Tarkan: I would go anywhere it calls me. I am ready to do whatever it wants me to do. I will be at wherever the nature is. I mean I will continue to struggle for it….

Tarkan & Bilge???

In ultima saptamana au circulat foarte multe zvonuri in presa turca, cum ca Tarkan si Bilge s-ar fi despartit. Ziarele l-au citat chiar pe Tarkan (cel putin asa sustin ele) si au afirmat sus si tare ca Bilge s-ar fi mutat deja din casa artistului turc. Mai mult, s-a afirmat ca aceasta despartire nu este proaspata, deoarece Bilge nu l-a insotit pe Tarkan la ultimele sale concerte.
Echipa Tarkans-World infirma toate aceste zvonuri. Infirmarea lor vine direct de la sursa, care ne intreaba (asa cum era si normal): "de cand credeti voi ceea ce sciru ziarele turcesti, fara ca macar sa va inrebati daca este adevarat sau nu??? Stati linistiti, amandoi va rugam, nu mai credeti tot ce se spune sau se scrie, decat daca o auziti direct de la noi"

Tarkan in Azerbaijan - Interview

Tarkan: I am very glad to be in Azerbaijan and to meet you again

Megastar of Turkey Tarkan arrived in Azerbaijan tonight, APA reports. At the airport Tarkan told journalists that he was sure his two-day concert in Green Theater would be successful. He said he would sing the songs from his recent album Metamorfoz and other lovely songs.
“I am very glad to be in Azerbaijan and to meet you again. I love Azerbaijan very much. I promise an unforgettable concert to you,” he said.
Commenting on his previous three concerts in Azerbaijan, when another singer appeared on the stage at the beginning of the concert, Tarkan said he did not mind it.“I sing solo at every concert. Other singers perform at the beginning of the concert. I think it is normal. We should support the youth. I know Zarema and supported her when she first appeared on the stage,” he said.
Taking a stance on the rumors before his concert in Baku, megastar said the rumors that he did not want to come to Azerbaijan were groundless.“These reports are false. I have never refused to come to Azerbaijan. I am here and will give two-day concert in the Green Theater. We will sing, dance and have good time together,” he said.
Tarkan noted that he had very good relationship with Sezen Aksu.“I love Sezen Aksu and admire her, and this will always be so,” he said.Tarkan said he would not sing duet with Sibel Can and added that he had written a song for her “Cakmak, cakmak” and sang vocal.“I did not sing duet with Sibel Can. I simply composed a sing for her and she sang,” he said.
Tarkan said he loved Azerbaijani songs, but was not going to sing our songs.“You have a different dialect and I can not sing in your dialect. I do not want to look ridiculous. But I love Azerbaijani songs and listen to them,” he said.
Tarkan said he could not watch Eurovision-2008 song contest, but would support Azerbaijan’s representatives.
Turkish megastar Tarkan will give concert in Green Theater on May 21-22 and leave for Turkey on May 23. APA information agency provides information support to the concert.

Megastar Tarkan joins campaign to save Hasankeyf

Turkish pop star Tarkan has joined the "Stop Ilısu Dam– Save Hasankeyf" campaign launched by a Turkish nature association to convince local and international institutions to recognize the region as a World Cultural and Natural Heritage site.

Tarkan, one of the most popular singers in Turkey, will open the Hasankeyf office of Doğa Derneği (Nature Association) on May 14, from where the association will continue its scientific work and follow the developments in the region directly.

“Although the Tigris Valley in the southwest of Turkey possess the symbols of 10,000 years of history in Hasankeyf, the invaluable natural and cultural treasures of the world stand to be flooded by the State Waterworks Directorate's Ilisu Dam Project,” said Erkut Ertürk, Doğa Derneği campaign coordinator.

“If the Ilisu Dam project is carried out, the ecological system of the Tigris Valley and the 400-kilometer riverbed will be destroyed forever,” Ertürk said.

Local and international environmental organizations are campaigning for the suspension of the Ilısu Dam project, which is part of the greater Southeastern Anatolia Project (GAP) that aims to turn the region into Turkey's breadbasket through an irrigation network.

Ilısu Dam, when completed, will flood the town of Hasankeyf, seen as a major cultural and tourism spot.

Culture and Tourism Minister Ertuğrul Günay has said in the past that none of the historical artifacts in the region would be left to be submerged under rising water, but noted that the development of the country and the region was a priority.

The financing of the dam, provided mostly by European backers, is also a source of controversy with serious pressure put on them to withdraw their support.

!!! Coming soon: Dedikodu Video !!!

Conform relatarilor presei turcesti, intr-un interviu de saptaman trecuta, Tarkan (care se afla intr-o dispozitie foarte vesela, dupa o petrecere cu Metin Arolat pentru a sarbatori cel de-al 3-lea videoclip de pe albumul Metamorfoz) a declarat ca urmatoarele 2 videoclipuri vor fi cele care au castigat poll-ul desfasurat pe site-ul sau oficial.
In ciuda zvonurilor ca ar face un videoclip pentru piesa Arada Bir, artistul a declarat ca tocmai a incheiat filmarile la Dedikodu, si ca Dili Duduk este cel care urmeaza, si va fi finalizat inainte de inceperea verii si a seriei de concerte.
Videoclipul Dedikodu a fost regizat de Metin Arolat, cel care a regizat si Kuzu Kuzu.

Acccording to news from the Turkish Press, in an interview dated last week, Tarkan (who was in a very joyfull mood after a party with Metin Arolat, celebrating the 3rd video on Metamorfoz) declared that the next 2 videos will be the winners of the poll that was held on his official website.
In spite of the rumours that Arada Bir will be the next song to be turned into a video, the artist said that he had just ended the filming for Dedikodu, and that Dili Duduk is next on the list, and that it will be finished before the begining of the summer and of the concert series.
Dedikodu was directed by Metin Arolat, who also directed Kuzu Kuzu.

Formula 1

Yesterday Tarkan performed at Reina Istanbul, at the private opening party for Formula 1 races which are being held in Istanbul this year. Rumors said Tarkan would also sing the Turkish national anthem to open the race, but this news has not yet been confirmed.
