From Father To Son, A Clarinet Legend
Balkans & Tavernas & Makams
Music is heritage in Sesler family, and their destiny is that of a part of Turkey. The clarinet master Ramazan Sesler is continuing a tradition of three generations, from Greece to Keşan in Turkey, then to Istanbul and the international scene.
Son of Selim Sesler, a monument of the Turkish music known as the “Coltrane of Clarinet”, Ramazan Sesler perpetuates a unique style and a family lineage with the live performance and album From Father To Son, A Clarinet Legend.
Ramazan Sesler reveals all aspects of his instrument with a wide repertoire that ranges from fine makams to rhythms of Balkans, and to the alternatively jubilant and melancholic atmospheres of the taverns of the Bosphorus.
