This spring, Nublu Records is proud to announce the release of Ilhan Ersahin’s WONDERLAND “The Other Side”  adding to the canon of Nublu  experiments, Ersahin salutes turkish traditional gypsy sounds via his eclectic modern touch to "the music of now”. Wonderland’s sensuous chill-out sound is infused with a languorous arabesque essence and tinged with opiated dub effects. “The Other Side" exists in its own zone, floating beyond boundaries of space and time. 

This very special album is a summit meeting spanning space and time, decades, cultures, genres, countries and continents. It involves traditional music, international pop, boldface names, young hotshots, strains from various ethnic and linguistic backgrounds, and an internal logic that makes the resulting music practically jump at the listener out of the speakers.

The story behind this very special record involves sessions held over a span of a number of years between friends, collaborators and acquaintances. Spearheaded by Ilhan Ersahin on saxophone and Wurlitzer electric piano and clarinet master Husnu Senlendirici, the project coalesces behind the vocals of three famous vocalists: Gilberto Gil, Jane Birkin and Seyyal Taner (often described as the Tina Turner of Turkey). Along with those legendary figures, the project also features an impressive array of players exploring a gypsy/arabesque musical strain.
