Hamiyet Yüceses: Bakmıyor Çeşmi Siyah
Discover the Yma Sumac-in outer space wail of female Turkish vocalist Hamiyet Yuceses!
Hamiyet Yuceses (Istanbul, 1914-1996) was one of the greatest Turkish singers (her surname means precisely "great voice"), and specialized in traditional and popular songs. She was famous for her renderings of the gazel (vocal improvisation) style. Listen to this song, her signature song, which showcases her powerful voice, her wide range and her exceptional control: her lung-busting, long-held notes are really impressive and notice how much she can sing withouth breathing in, especially when she starts modulating! Hold your breath and enjoy this Turkish delight!
