The idea for the band Nasip Kısmet came from Arif Erdem Ocak from Ankara, who has lived in Budapest since 2010. The versatile musician’s interest in ancient Anatolian mysticism and philosophy led him to a multi-instrumental discovery of its songs and poetry. He then launched ethno-folk jazz band Nasip Kısmet in 2020, and they are currently working on a full-length album after a three-song EP released in 2021. The age-old soundscape of Nasip Kismet is about heart and soul. The deep historical roots of Turkish music are echoed in the intense presence of the guitar and rhythm section, and merge with the saxophone and keyboards.
