It is difficult to label Kalben (full name Kalben Sağdıç) – she is a graphic designer, an actress, an author of children’s novels and yes, a singer/songwriter.
Her musical breakthrough was a viral acoustic video on the Sofar Sounds platform in 2014. In the past five years, Kalben has become an established name in the alternative Turkish music scene.
After two studio albums in 2016 (Kalben) and 2017 (Sonuza Kadar), Kalben has released an EP (Aşk Çeşmesi) with four tracks earlier this year. This is the video for Çek, partly interpreted in sign language.
