Burak Kaya

Born:

Burak Kaya (1970) was born in Ankara, Turkey. He began playing classical guitar at age of 12. He played both classical guitar music and jazz standards seperately for a long period of time. Although he took some guitar and harmony lessons, he's mostly self-taught. Kaya had a strong influence of world music, latin jazz and Anatolian traditional musics in his style. Instead of using amplified guitars he prefers to play nylon string classical guitar which creates an natural acoustic sound. He plays mostly in small groups such as jazz trios including double bass and percussions or duo instrument projects

Read "Climate Change" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
