Watch Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul - Alternative Versions.
This is a movie about the music that is currently being played in
Istanbul. Istanbul was the center of the two Old World superpowers, the
Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman Empire. Today, it is a megalopolis of
almost 10 million. So it is to no ones surprise that a lot of music is
being played in Istanbul, with a great variety of voices, styles, and
influences from everywhere on the globe. It is Turkish music, of
course, and I was fascinated by Turkish music ever since I bought my
first record long time ago. The movie features different singers,
instrumentalists and bands. Spoken comments from the musicians nicely
illustrate the music being played, and the social context in modern
Turkey. For my perspective, the most interesting comments were from
Orhan Gencebay. Furthermore, the movies shows urban scenery mainly from
Istanbul which is very pleasant to watch.
"Crossing the Bridge" is listed as a documentary and it includes music
from minorities, e.g. Kurds and Roma. Other important topics are
omitted such as Turkish jazz music, or music of the Armenians and
This movie is strongly recommended for lovers of the music and culture
of Turkey, the Balkans, the Eastern Mediterranean, and the Middle East.
It may also be worthwhile for those with a keen interest in the global
effects of musical styles such as Rock and Roll or Hip Hop.
