EMRAH ÖZKAYA

Emrah's journey with music started when he was still crawling, making noise with all kinds of kitchen utensils such as pots and pans. Over the years, by first discovering the mandolin and then the guitar, Emrah, who carried the sessions of disturbing the household and neighbors to a more instrumental channel, grabbed the microphone offered to him at a pool party in Datça and realized that his voice could also be an instrument. He loudly put into practice the singing lessons he took at the Pera Fine Arts Center during his university years, as the soloist of the alternative rock band Insect, at one of Taksim's distinguished venues, Açık Sahne. With the various cover band projects he has been involved in over the years and the compositions he has composed for his personal collection, he decided not to break away from music and finally to share music for social purposes and joined the Social Music team in 2021. He represents the overseas leg of the team and leads the workshops in English for international participants.
