The new bi’bakaudio series OUTERNATIONALE: Stars from Outer Space is devoted to the concept of Outernational Music, a counterposition to so-called “World music”. While “World music” tends to exoticize or tame music produced outside of the Western world, Outernational Music sees the distinction between Western music and World music as an extension of the colonial perspective. In contrast, the emphasis is on sound productions that are received and celebrated in cross-border geographies far away from the Western music market - neither mainstream nor underground, but multilingual and influenced by diverse musical traditions and cultures. The music talk series OUTERNATIONALE presents selected artists, along with their artistic creations and biographies, in conversation with experts. Venturing beyond cultural or linguistic barriers, we begin a project of collective musicological research.
Derdiyoklar or Derdiyoklar Ikilisi, founded by Ali Ekber Aydoğan and İhsan Güvercin in 1979, was perhaps the most significant Turkish music duo in Germany. Playing electro-saz, drums and especially designed instruments, they developed their own music genre: Disco Folk. Their insane live performances, unique style and anti-rascist lyrics made them tremendously popular within the Turkish migrant communities in Germany, and hence, they were the most demanded wedding band in the 80s. Their iconic fame encouraged other bands to imitate their style and music. The compilation albums and reissues in the last few years introduced them to a global audience.Yet Derdiyoklar is still an unknown gem for the non-Turkish-speaking listeners in Germany. In this kick-off session, Sebastian Reier aka Booty Carrell will guide us through a journey in Derdiyoklar’s psychedelic sonic space.
Booty Carrell is the DJ alias of Vinyl archaeologist, Golden Pudel resident and outernational deejay Sebastian Reier. Carrell does his research in the deep spaces of the vinyl universe. He likes to dig into the second wave of musical globalization.
