Porträt von Mehmet Aslan
© Robbie Campbell

Basel-born DJ and musician Mehmet Aslan is rightly regarded as one of the city's most important figureheads for electronic music. Since his groundbreaking EP Mechanical Turk, the artist, who grew up in a Turkish immigrant family, has laid the foundations for a musical exploration of the fluid concept of identity. His music combines traditional Turkish and oriental sounds with detailed electronic music and field recordings. Aslan, who now lives in Berlin, is returning to Basel to perform his internationally acclaimed album The Sun Is Parallel with a live band. In the second part of the evening, Basel DJ/collector duo Alma Negra will be playing records from everywhere, yesterday and tomorrow. New York house meets your last holiday in Italy, meets the endless music of West Africa, Cuban jazz and so on. 

As part of Theaterfestival Basel.
