Album Notes
My first album "Finding Home" represents my spiritual feeling of being at home anywhere. As a cross-cultural musician, I have blended my cultural roots with contemporary jazz, funk beats. I also consider myself a sound design artist and include soundscapes of environmental, cultural, and Jungian inspirations in this album. Each sound has a symbolic meaning, such as water, snow dripping, etc., to take you with me from Istanbul to Dallas. I want my lyrics "Finding Home" to inspire you to find your own home one day.

Duriye - Percussion, Writer, Producer, Sound Design, Lead Vocal

I started this journey in 1999 with Ayhan Sicimoglu in Istanbul Turkey, and studied Afro-Cuban rhythms. From performing with Las Estrellas in Istanbul under Ayhan Sicimoglu's Afro-Cuban Project, I’ve continued my journey in Dallas performing with different musicians in Latin, Jazz, Rock, Folk and Funk styles since 2004, along with my own band “Duriye & Friends." As a conga player, it’s been important for me to apply the fundamentals of Afro-Cuban rhythms with the right technique and discipline. Performing with people who appreciate the profundity of Latin music brings me great pleasure.

I will continue to believe in my heartbeat as growing never ends. I give thanks to everybody who’s inspired, supported, and taught me on this joyful path.
