Turkish Nostalgia by "FAME"

Mete Tasin will return to the Koret Auditorium this Sunday, May 8, from 2-3:30 to sing Pop Songs of the 1970's and 1980's. Some of the songs performed will include “Parole,” (Words) and “I Will Survive.” These and other songs will be sung in Turkish, English, or Italian. Mete Tasin, has sung opera at the Koret Auditorium a number of times. He holds two Master’s degrees: one in Music from Brooklyn College and another in Performing Classical Music from the Conservatorio Del Liceu, Barcelona.

Mete will be joined by three other musicians. (Their initials’, along with Mete’s spell “FAME.”) Fatosh started playing piano at the age of nine. Inspired by her native Cypriot Folk Music, Fatosh began playing accordion, and for the last 20 years she has been traveling Europe and America representing her country at music festivals. Abi graduated from San Jose State University with a Master’s in Jazz Performance. He is well-known, in his native Venezuela as a Film/TV Music Composer, with more than 30 short films and TV specials scored. The only member who is not pursuing music as a professional career, Ekin was born in Turkey and studied Chemical Engineering for her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at Middle East Technical University, Turkey. She has studied Jazz Performance at Middle East Technical University and Voice at Stanford University.

It’s sure to be a fun afternoon of nostalgia, with an international flair.
