SHOW: Thursday at Drom ($15)

East meets West in the band Minor Empire. The core members of the group hail from Turkey – but are based in Toronto. Their songs, many based on traditional Turkish folk tunes, strike a balance between traditional and experimental, acoustic and electric, and between ecstasy and melancholy.

I love your music Minor Empire. Come to Turkey and give a concert to the fans in Turkey. You should have been known by much people. Thanks for your contributions to Turkish music.
