MUSICIAN Born:

Arto Tuncboyaciyan

Arto Tunçboyaciyan, percussionist and singer, was born in Turkey in 1957 of Armenian descent of the Anatolian root.

One of his greatest influences of music and life was his brother Onno, musician himself, who encouraged Arto to develop his character not just as a brother but as a friend and as a musician.

At the age of 11, he began his career playing and recording traditional music with his brother establishing himself as a professional musician throughout Turkey and Europe.

Music is a fundamental element of his life, by which he tries to communicate his great values: love, respect and truth.

Human Element: Human Element

Read "Human Element" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The supergroup sobriquet that label Abstract Logix has placed on Human Element is quite a billing to live up to, but keyboardist Scott Kinsey, bassist Matt Garrison, percussionist/vocalist Arto Tunçboyaciyan and drummer Gary Novak pool their individual talents and rise spectacularly to the challenge.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
