Erkin Koray ve Yeraltı Dörtlüsü – Sana Bir Şeyler Olmuş | 1969

Erkin Koray – without doubt – is the father of Turkish rock music. This is why he is also known as Erkin Baba (Erkin the Father). He started his professional music career in 1966 as the solist of “Erkin Koray ve Yeraltı Dörtlüsü” (Erkin Koray and Underground Quartet) and continues to record and perform to this day. He is truly one of the living legends of Turkish music. “Sana Bir Şeyler Olmuş” (Something Has Happened to You) is the cover of Chris Kenner’s “Land of a Thousand Dances” released in 1963 and it is the first live performance of Erkin Koray, broadcasted live at the radio station of Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT) national public broadcaster of Turkey founded in 1960s. Enjoy Erkin Koray’s one of the earliest songs “Sana Bir Şeyler Olmuş” released in 1969.
