so, on monday I'm going to Turkey for three weeks, Istanbul to be exact and I'm wondering if anyone knows of any local bands or resident good 'Turkish' bands to check out while I'm there. I posted this in Alt. and Indie but I figured I'd get a better response here, (and if this isnt the best place to post this Andrew, feel free to delete or close either of them) not that anyone on UG would have any idea on this topic

so um, any group to start off with?

Don't know what kind of music you like but www.metal-observer.com is a good site, especially if you're interested in metal bands from the middle-east. You can find and sort bands by country there.
