Sezen Aksu Biography
- From Singing in Secret to International Chart Topper
Born in 1950s Turkey, this commanding songstress faced adversity
during her youth as she battled for her musical passion to be recognised by her parents, who wanted her to focus on training
to become a doctor or engineer. Her resolve was so great that the young singer would wait until her parents left the house
to practice singing on the balcony. Her perseverance paid off as it took just one year from the release of her debut for the
performer to attract attention with 1976 effort 'Olmaz Olsun/Vurdumduymaz' after it shot to the top Number One spot in the
During the '80s her tumultuous relationship with producer Onno Tunc may have been unstable romantically
but it was a winning combination professionally. They pushed the boundaries of pan-continental pop with hits such as 'Sen
Aglama' and 'Git'. Their prosperous partnership continued into the '90s when the two produced Aksu's best-selling album to
date, Gulumse. This record would see the sensational singer earn worldwide recognition after lead single 'Hadi Bakalim'
was rediscovered as 'Rhythm of the Night' by Europop hit Loona. Her international fame continued with the more mature Isik
Dogudan Yukselir which peppered the sounds of her Turkish roots with elements of Western classical music, producing a
more appealing sound for her European fanbase.
