Newest song: Herşeye Rağmen - with Romanian Subtitles

"Her Şeye Rağmen" from Enbe Orchestra's new album - written & composed by Sezen Aksu, arranged by Mustafa Ceceli.

Kan... Keder... Gözyaşı ve ümit
Herşeye rağmen...
Yaşamak inadına vazgeçmiyor
...Sızım sızım sızlarken...
Kaç bin yıllık bir kıyımdır bu?
Nasıl direniyor insan hala?
Gercekten ümit varmı
Ah bunca günahla?

Bari sen bırakma ellerimi,
Bari sen yapma...
Şimdi her zamandan
Daha fazla sarılmalıyız aşka...

Yanıyor dünya, sonumuz yakın..
Gel bütün gücunle kalbime tutun.
Aglıyor dünya, halimiz hazin..
Sevişmeliyiz aşkta, yoksa -
Yoksun... Yokum...

Söz - Müzik: Sezen Aksu

Tarkan doubled National Geographic documentary on the great migration

National Geographic Channel, the largest channel of this type in Turkey, famous for the production of a documentary on the Great Migration will broadcast on 7 November 2010 this documentary all around Turkey.
The documentary reffers to many animal species, and the voice on this documentary series was performed by Tarkan.
The great interest and love of nature and animals, human nature, giving something back to the nature and respecting the rights of the animals, these were the guidelines for Tarkan in his journey in Kenya between September 26 to October 5.
The "Great Migration" is a documentary shot in Kenya in order to monitor the process of other species. Tarkan and the documentary team followed them around this magical journey and were able to catch on their lenses the beauty of the journey. They also visited nature camps in Kenya's Masai Mara National Geographic Society.

Tarkan @ Harbiye Açıkhava Tiyatrosu

Last night the opening concert of the Harbiye series took place. Tarkan presented his album, Adimi Kalbine Yaz (Step into the heart of summer) to an audience of 6500. Although the theater has only 5000 seats, and all the tickets were sold to the last one, the organisers decideed to give tickets also for the extra space, that is the stairs of the theater.
Hurriyet writes that the concert was outstanding and that for the concert of tonight also all tickets were sold.
Also, Hurriyet notes that fans held us a banner saying: "Tarkan, you've captured us! We've written your name across our hearts!"This was the banner of our colleague club, Tarkanclub, also part of TarkanInternational! :)
As per the above mentioned paper, Adimi Kalbine Yaz from the album with the same name is certainly the most popular song at the moment.

Tarkan & PETA: Turkish Pop Legend Takes It All Off

source: www.peta.org

Question: Why are we obsessed with Turkish pop legend Tarkan? Answer: Deemed the "Prince of Pop" and the Turkish Elvis, the international musical phenomenon is also a friend to animals. He took time out of his hectic schedule to pose with Penny, a PETA staff member's rescued pooch, and to urge people to help control the animal overpopulation crisis by having their animal companions spayed or neutered. Check out his new ad and an interview he did with PETA Germany:

When did PETA first enter your life?
During the promotional tour for my album Come Closer, PETA reached out to me to voice feelings about my wearing a fur coat on the album cover. Having been an animal lover since childhood, this instance when I was pictured wearing fur on the cover of my album was truly a regrettable one. On the day of my album's cover shoot, we tested many looks, one of which happened to include a coat with fur accents. The pictures ended up being used as the album's cover artwork. In hindsight, I wish I had never worn the coat—but I am also a believer that everything in life happens for a reason. Because of that mistake, PETA and I crossed paths, joined forces, and are now working together to protect animal rights worldwide. Once all the unimaginable circumstances being suffered by helpless animals were brought to my attention and I saw footage portraying the horrible pain that animals were enduring for the sake of fashion, I immediately swore off fur.

What do you think of PETA?
I am happy to be supporting PETA—an organization that's fighting for animal rights worldwide. PETA's relentless efforts to protect the well-being of animals around the world is a cause that is very important to me.

How do you think we can make animals' lives better? Do you think that the existing campaigns are enough?
I am fortunate enough to be able to use my celebrity to draw attention to PETA and to encourage my fans to join the animal rights movement. I feel it is up to all of us to take a stand as consumers and choose a cruelty-free lifestyle. Once we stop encouraging industries that are making a profit at the expense of animals, we will end the demand and make a change for animals worldwide.

Do you think that celebrities are doing enough to protect the rights of animals in Turkey?
There have been many celebrities in Turkey who have spoken out for animal rights, including my dear friend, Sezen Aksu, who is both an animal lover and an activist. I hope that with this campaign, more of my colleagues, friends, and fans will be inspired to voice their support for animal rights.

How did you find your dogs?
Over the last few years, I have rescued approximately a dozen dogs from the streets of Turkey. Some were brought to me by friends, and some have even shown up at my doorstep looking for a home. They have brought me endless joy, and I treasure their unconditional love.

How many dogs do you have, and where do they live?
I currently have four dogs (all rescued), named Efe, Carmella, Johnita, and Jackie. They all live with me at my ranch just outside Istanbul.

Do you have a favorite among them? Why?
I love all my dogs, as each has his or her own unique character. But Johnita is very special to me—she is the one who never leaves my side, no matter what.

Tell us a story about you and one of your dogs.
I used to have a dog named Efe, who I loved—and who passed away. Just a week later, a stray dog who almost identically resembled Efe showed up at my doorstep. I immediately welcomed him into my family and named him Efe as well.

How is your life nowadays? What is the latest with you?
I am currently in the studio working on my new album. In my free time, I like to work with many nonprofit organizations such as Doğa Derneği (Nature Foundation), UNICEF, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and more, to use my voice for change. But most of all, I am happy to be able to come home to my loving companions at the end of a long day at the studio.
