The musician Burhan Ocal was born in the city of Kirklareli in the European part of Turkey. His father owned a number of cafés and other establishments in Istanbul so that Burhan Ocal grew up surrounded by the music of the Gypsy ensembles who played there. His father taught him to play oriental percussion instruments, an art he later developed to perfection. However, Burhan Ocal and this group did not appear on the international scene until the mid-nineties with the release of his two albums "Gypsy Rum" and "Sultan´s Secret Door" on the Network label in Frankfurt which brought them invitations to international festivals.
In 2001 Burhan Ocal teamed up with US bass player Jamaaladeen Tacuma to create "Groove alla Turca", his biggest jazz fusion exploration to date.
