Longtime friendship of Marcello Allulli, Emanuele de Raymondi, and Selen Gülün led the three musicians to come together and create this multicultural project.
As it took a few years to complete the album, the music in KAPI is the result of many layers of time, travels, places, and experiences. Through real teamwork, each of the compositions found their deeper soul. They recorded the album live in Istanbul in February 2015 at the Bilgi University Music studios. 
KAPI, which means “door” in Turkish, was published by the Italian label EvArt – Arte ed Eventi in November 2016. Throughout the years, Trio opened the “door” for future interdisciplinary collaborations, shared the stage in  Rome, Istanbul and Japan with many great musicians, and visual artists.

New pocket seminar series
by Selen Gülün 

The Golden Years Of Jazz: 50s

The 10-year period that started after the release of Miles Davis's 'Birth Of The Cool' album forms the modern language of jazz. Within 10 years, the most important movements of jazz music such as hard bop, free jazz, and modal jazz were originated by legendary musicians such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Ornette Coleman, and the most important albums of history were released one after another. As writer Steinberger puts it, “Jazz, as a serious and enduring form of art, is essentially a phenomenon of the American 50’s: to understand jazz is to understand the 50’s, and to understand the 50’s is to understand jazz.”

In this 4-week pocket seminar organized by Selen Gülün on behalf of iKi Muzik, we will get to know the currents, musicians and important albums of the period, and embark on an entertaining and instructive journey that is told in depth from the perspective of a jazz musician.

We will meet with Zoom between 20-27.06, 4-11.07, Tuesday, 21.00-22.30.  Sessions will be recorded and the recordings can be watched by the participants for 48 hours.
