This live recording resulted from a collaboration between Ensemble Phoenix Basel and Neva Özgen (kemençe) and Didem Dermen (kanun) from Turkey. The composition for kanun and ensemble On the Back Streets of the Old Istanbul, by Hasan Uçarsu, was commissioned as part of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Projects in 2001. Evrim Demirel was commissioned for this occasion to compose Darb-ı dügah, a piece for kemençe, kanun and ensemble.
