DÜNYA Directed by Mehmet Ali Sanlikol

Presented by World Music Institute

Grammy Award-nominated composer and New England Conservatory faculty member Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol hails from Cyprus and Turkey and was DownBeat Magazine’s September 2016 Editor’s pick, and JAZZIZ’s Top 10 Critics’ Choice 2014. A jazz pianist, multi-instrumentalist, and singer, Sanlıkol has been praised by critics all over the world for his unique, pluralist, multicultural and energetic musical voice. The Boston Globe noted that Sanlıkol’s “music is colorful, fanciful, full of rhythmic life, and full of feeling. multiculturalism is not touristy, but rather sophisticated, informed, internalized; Sanlıkol is a citizen of the world”, “...and he (Sanlıkol) is another who could play a decisive role in music’s future in the world.” Sanlıkol has composed for, performed and toured with international stars and ensembles including Dave Liebman, Bob Brookmeyer, Anat Cohen, Esperanza Spalding, Billy Cobham, Antonio Sanchez, Gil Goldstein, Tiger Okoshi, The Boston Camerata, The Boston Cello Quartet, A Far Cry, American Composers Orchestra, Okay Temiz, Erkan Oğur and Brenna MacCrimmon.

DÜNYA (the Turkish, Arabic, Persian, Greek word for “world”) is a musicians’ collective based in Boston, Massachusetts. It’s goal is to explore a cosmopolitan view of the world through the lens of a wide range of Turkish traditions, alone and in conversation with the music of the formerly Ottoman peoples—Greeks, Jews, Armenians, Arabs, Kurds, mystics—as well as with western and other world traditions.
