Coco María presents Club Coco
After performing at the festival with her band, Grup Simsek, in 2017, this Hamburg-based singer and multi-instrumentalist is returning to Le Guess Who? on her own, making Anatolian folk the focus of her solo set. Combining the Turkish lute with her layered powerful voice, Derya Yıldırım makes the stage a world of melancholia - taking the rich traditional poetry and music of Turkey and tasking herself with the arduous challenge of bringing it into the present without losing awareness of the past.
