Who is "The Standing Man"?
Erdem Gündüz gained international fame with his passive protest during Gezi Park protests in 2013.
His exceptional form of protest inspired activists in Turkey and around the world to assume the same pose.
He was honoured for his "courageous commitment to freedom of expression and human rights" with the M100 Media Award.
Robert Mehmet İkiz has toured and held workshops in 45 countries as a drummer. İkiz is an integral member of acclaimed outfits such as Nils Landgren Funk Unit, Jacob Karlzon 3 & Dan Reed Band.
İkiz has also toured with BBC Orchestra, NDR Big Band, Barbara Hendricks & Joe Sample to name a few.
His debut album "Checking In" was released 2012.
