Psychedelic Turkish pop group Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek bring their outernational sound to London

Electrified and highly danceable Turkish sounds from the modern super-quintet Grup Şimşek.

Their fresh approach combines Anatolian Folk and contemporary grooves alongside a sprinkling of Psychedelia and progressive rock flavours.

Led by Derya Yıldırım’s hypnotizing bağlama and vocals the group draws a meaningful continuity between Turkish folk traditions and their original song-writing, creating a strong, dancefloor-friendly sonic identity and irresistible energy.

The band is now ready to launch their upcoming double-LP DOST.
