Yetis from Turkey...

...entertained us this evening with songs in Turkish and Kurdish. Thank you so much, Yetis Tatlidil Eroglu.
Through the wonders of the Internet, our listeners in Turkey increased as Yetis brought her mother to tears with her sad, beautiful songs and her fiance expressed his love for her with an email response. Several other friends and family heard her too and Yetis was greatly appreciated by our guest Marie Paule from France and the two Martins in the studio.

Yetis sang Oy Gelin Gelin in Turkish and Rojekte in Kurdish. Check out her music on her myspace page. Her fiance's music is recommended too. He is Ozdas Eroglu.
