Istanbul powerhouse trio Lalalar returns to Bucharest – September 22 at Control Club – as part of DokStation Music Documentary Film Festival’s 7th edition.
After setting European stages on fire with the release of their first LP in 2022, the mighty Turkish band returns with En Kötü Iyi Olur, an album that reflects their image: edgy, independent, political, and tremendously effective. With their roots in Anatolian poetry and sounds, but their focus on a club-oriented, uncompromising rock, Lalalar has not given up and is once again ready to turn everything upside down.
The brainchild of three of Turkey’s most active and innovative alternative artists – Ali Güçlü Şimşek, Barlas Tan Özemek and Kaan Düzarat – the music of Lalalar is a thrilling mix of punk energy, dark electronics and Turkish instrumentation and samples.
