Elektron Jam Session Video 7: Yaybahar Meets Elektrons

Swedish hardware manufacturer Elektron unveils musical collaboration with Görkem Şen, inventor of the acoustic instrument Yaybahar. Elektron Jam Session 7 is here for your visual and aural pleasure.  

Rarely does a completely new acoustic instrument get as recognized as the Yaybahar. Mere days after being published online, the video featuring musician/inventor Görkem Şen playing his creation had been seen by literally millions of viewers. There's a reason for this level of popularity. The Yaybahar sounds like nothing else. Strange and majestic. Part string instrument, part apocalyptic dream generator.

When the Yaybahar is teamed up with Elektron machines two very similar worlds meet. One acoustic, one electronic - both of the progressive kind. The essence is the same, only the means are different. And the outcome defies categorization.
