Derya Yildirim and Grup Şimşek are here at Euronews in Lyon for a Turkish psychedelic rock concert straight from the 1970s.

The group was spawned from the 2014 meeting between German-Turkish singer and saxophonist Derya Yildirim, English percussionist Greta Eacott, and French musicians and members of the Orchestre du Montplaisant Antonin Voyant, Graham Mushnik and Andrea Piro.

The band pays tribute to the great moments of a major trend in oriental rock while adding their own unique flavour.

Broadcast live on our YouTube channel (in the player above), the group will perform a handful of songs from their new album which is scheduled for release in May 2019.
