Olcay Bayir's music is a natural marriage of her time-honoured Anatolian heritage and the vibrant, eclectic sounds of London. Classically-trained in the UK as a soprano, collaborations with musicians from all around the world have informed Olcay’s music as much as the rich folk traditions of her youth. Expect a rhythmically powerful, soulful, rooted and contemporary live set.
Her debut album ‘Neva’ was a collection of Anatolian folk songs. The new album "Rüya- Dream" was part funded by PRS Foundation’s Women Make Music programme and showcases Olcay’s own compositions.
“one of the finest, most intriguing singers on the British world music scene", the Guardian.
"a heart-stoppingly beautiful and emotive voice" ☆☆☆☆ RnR Mazagine UK
"this fantastic singer is on the eve of a great international career.” Mixed World Music, Netherlands
