TURKEY 2010 - maNga - We Could Be The Same
« on: August 25, 2009, 08:10:39 PM »

TURKEY 2010



Firstly, thanks a lot to Hadise for her representing Turkey so successfully. Although she succeeded to get a quite high place in the ranking at the end of the contest, it was not well enough to satisfy TRT that was full of desire to host the contest once more in Turkey. Anyway, we expect TRT not to let their dreams go down after a few unsuccessful attempts, and expect it to keep on looking for the one who will bring the victory to Turkey at last.  :P


So, who should represent Turkey to carry out this mission in the best way?   :P

There is a poll that is open to everyone. http://answers.polldaddy.com/poll/1755225/  Last year, Hadise led in the poll, and TRT offered her to participate in the contest. TRT may take the result of the poll into consideration again for next year.  :)

I wish he would say "yes", but no he keeps on rejecting all kinds of offers for years!   ^-^  Anyway, I suppose Hande Yener could create wonders on the stage too.  :P

It would be very interesting to see Tarkan in Eurovision. Who knows, maybe he will say yes.  :)

Could it be possible to send something totally different from ESC 2009, for example somebody like for example Yusuf Güney. He has a very nice voice, he is a good performer. I am afraid that Zlynet Sali would be another Hadise, maybe I am wrong, but it came into my mind when I was watching at her youtube videos.  :-[

Here is one song by Yusuf Güney:


YUSUF GÜNEY ASKIM ASKLARINDAN BULASIN 2009 ORJINAL YENI KLIP

sorry Niko I was'nt impressed. Sure unlike some pop singers we had in esc he can sing, but i am quite sure he wouldn't send an interesting song to the eurovision song contest

Guys, you know Turkey's 2010 representor is MANGA. They recently won an award  ' Best European Act ' from MTV. Manga is one of the populer rock bands in Turkey. They're getting together 2 different genres : rap & rock. Also they use some ethnic elements on their songs. Maybe it doesnt sound promising but i think they're succesful and hit-maker =) I want to share some videos of Manga.

Beni Benimle Bırak


Dünyanın Sonuna Doğmuşum

Thank you Ishik! I liked Beni Benimle Bırak  but not the 2nd song.  :-[ I hope Manga's entry would be similar to the first song.  :)

A very good song, I must say, but I still like Mor ve Ötesi (ESC 2008) more.  ;)

Biography

maNga’s story began when Yağmur Sarıgül “Yamyam” (Guitar) seperated his ways with the cover band he played with at local bars.  His plan for his new band was to combine rock music and electronic music bringing hard guitar riffs and rap vocals together.  maNga began to form when Özgür Can Öney (Drums), Efe Yılmaz (Turntable),Ferman Akgül (Vocals) and Cem Bahtiyar (Bass Guitar) joined the new band.  The band began playing “nu metal” and “hard rock” songs. As a result the band was named maNga after the traditional Japanese cartoon art, bringing five different characters, five different music styles and five different world views together. Under the name of maNga, which is a familiar name to almost anyone in the world, they have started an intenational musical carreer.

maNga’s recording adventure began in 2001 when Ferman suggested to join the song contest “Sing Your Song”.  maNga took second place in the “Sing Your Song” contest with their first song “Kal Yanımda”.  After this success, they began writing the songs which would later be recorded in their first album.  When they recieved a phone call from Haluk Kurosman, producer they met during the song contest, they concentrated more on writing songs and giving concerts.  They began touring Turkey, giving more than 50 concerts and sharing their music with different crowds.

Their debut album which carried the same name with the band “maNga” was released on December 14th, 2004 under Sony Music Turkey and GRGDN label.  In this debut album, maNga sang “Kal Yanımda” featuring Koray Candemir from Kargo, “İz Bırakanlar Unutulmaz” featuring Deniz Akyüz from Vega, and “Dursun Zaman” featuring Göksel.  Selling more than 180.000 copies, maNga earned a Gold Record award.  maNga album was also released in Japan and sold many copies.  “Bir Kadın Çizeceksin” was included in the EA Sports FIFA 2006 computer game soundtrack.

In 2006 maNga album’s extended edition was rereleased as “maNga+” including one new maNga song “Kandırma Kendini”and the Cem Karaca cover “Raptiye Rap Rap”.  maNga+ came with a DVD that featured the music videos of this first album.

After the album’s release, maNga had many concerts and participated in many national and international festivals (Sziget Festival, Mannheim Turkish Rock Festival, Wembley Arena, London). Giving more than 250 concerts nationwide maNga came together with music lovers who appreciate the maNga music.

Travelling through different cultures and meeting many different people, more than 4 years after their debut album, maNga got into a new time period catching a smoother, more characteristic, warmer and more melancholic sound.  As the band members grew up in these 4 years, their world views has changed and the variety and kind of music they listened to has changed.  This change reflected on maNga’s sound, and their second album “Şehr-i Hüzün” which had a pre-recording period of 23 months.  The joy of the first album’s great success came with great responsibility and a mission to top the debut album.  The second album “Şehr-i Hüzün”, a product of many compromises and hard work, was released on April 15th, 2009 under GRGDN & Sony Music label.

“Şehr-i Hüzün” album consists of 16 songs, adding up to more than 60 minutes of music. Instruments such as reed flute, piano, tambour and traditional music instrument called “bağlama” create a beautiful blend of western and orient sounds bringing out minor melodies that portray love, existential lonelines, death and melancholy.  It is difficult to categorize the new maNga music that brings together rock, rap, electronic music, sufist music, and traditional Turkish music.  Famous philosopher poet Karacaoğlan and Ömer Hayyam are quoted in the songs “Üryan Geldim” and “Hepsi Bir Nefes”.

Listeners can also get a CD+DVD version of the album that includes a 150 minute maNga documentary wich was produced by Ferman Akgül.  The documentary tells the story of maNga from the days it was first formed until the coming out of the new album. 

maNga has conquered the hearts of their fans once again with two following videos from their new album “Dünyanın Sonuna Doğmuşum” and “Beni Benimle Bırak”. 

Moreover maNga has won “Best European Act” award at MTV Europe Music Awards 2009 On November 5th, 2009. After this award maNga have released their third video off the album “Cevapsız Sorular”, which was shot in Budapest by Gürcan Keltek. In 2009, maNga has taken numerous awards including the best video, the best band, the best song, the best album and the best performance.

Taking the winds of “Best European Act” to their back, maNga is now heading for the 55th Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo, Norway this May to represent Turkey.

maNga’s lead vocalist Ferman Akgül declared about Eurovision:

“We are entering the most exciting and the most intense period of our lives as a band. Our purpose is to represent Turkey without leaving our artistic style.”

Guitarist Yağmur Sarıgül added:

“I strongly believe we will do our best for Turkey as a team. I thank TRT (Turkish Radio and Televison) and all Turkish fans who supported and trusted maNga.”
