In Luna Ersahin’s voice, rests a story of the whole person in a composite world. In Turkish, Danish and Kurdish, she creates a fascinating universe in AySay together with Aske Døssing Bendixen and Carl West Hosbond. In the tension between Anatolia’s musical traditions, hand-played instruments and electronic productions, AySay’s unique expression arises.
If Altin Gün, AURORA and Eivør sat down and wrote a song together, it would be the sound of AySay.
For the active listener, AySay’s music is colorful, interwoven and surprising. For the dancing listener, the music will be enthralling, groovy and uplifting. And for those who use music for an inner journey, Luna’s voice and lyrics will show depth, honesty and hope.
AySay has, among other things, played Roskilde Festival, P6 Beat Rocker Koncerthuset and HEJ SØSTER FEST in Denmark as well as festivals abroad such as Sinsal (Spain), Arctic Sounds (Greenland) and Les Escales (France). In November 2022, AySay went to Canada, where they, among other things, played Mundial Montreal. Most recently, they have been awareded in three DMA Roots categories: Name of the Year, Album of the Year (Su Akar) and Luna Ersahin as Composer of the Year.
The band’s critically acclaimed debut album ’Su Akar’ was released in autumn 2021, and they will follow up in 2023 with the album ’KÖY’.
