Article

„Dervish of the modern world" was the headline of an article in a Turkish newspaper about Mercan Dede and his current project Secret Tribe. A pretty apt title for the work of this musician, DJ and producer who was born in Turkey and is now living in Montreal. He found his spiritual and musical home in the traditions of the Persian Sufis and discovered in them a parallel to the modern Trance rituals which are celebrated in House and Techno clubs. Mercan Dede combines Turkish virtuosity with urban dancefloor frenzy.
