NEED SONG SUGGESTIONS FOR YOUR TURKISH GIGS?

Save this post right away, even if currently you don’t perform much for a Turkish audience. 💃💃💃⠀

Here is my go-to list of songs whenever I’m invited to perform for Turkish crowds. Some are actually Turkish, some are Arabic, BUT they all work really nicely for Turkish audience, so I usually mix them together in one nonstop set.

  • Sezen Aksu - Rakkas

  • Sidi Mansour

  • Kiss Kiss by Tarkan

  • Rompi Rompi

  • Hoplada

  • Telegrafin

  • Yesilim

  • Gayda

  • Kara GozLu Cingenem

  • John Bilezikjan - has Turkish arrangements of many Arabic songs

  • Drum solo - the faster and more upbeat, the better

  • Shik Shak Shok

  • Songs by Nancy Ajram or Haife Wehbe⠀

English spelling may vary, but all these songs are easily searchable. What is your fav Turkish songs to dance to? Let’s complete this list with your suggestions.
