Moses Boyd combining electronics and jazz

He has collaborated with many famous figures, such as Lonnie Liston Smith, Ed Motta, Little Simz, Four Tet, Floating Points, Sampha, Zara McFarlane and Gilles Peterson. Clash magazine praised him, saying, "In his own modest but exceptional way Moses Boyd has helped make UK jazz impossible to ignore." Boyd, who takes the stage as The Exodus with his band and Solo Exodus by himself, enchants with his delectable moves combining grime, electronics and jazz. The successful musician will meet jazz lovers at Salon on Nov. 30 at 09:30 p.m. Tickets are available from Biletix sales channels or the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) main box office.
Liars to be a guest of Salon to share new songs
New Yorker dance punk, art rock band the Liars emerge with brand new energy in each album. They sound like youngsters due to their fiery energy, but actually they have been making music together for more than 20 years. The band, which has been followed by their fans since their debut album, was added to the best new albums list of Pitchfork. Seven years later, they are back at Salon touring with their latest album titled "TFCF."
Anna RF at Salon with familiar and touching melodies
Electronic, ethnic reggae band Anna RF explores the four corners of the world, rising from the Shaharut desert. They created their own authentic style, combining eastern and western melodies together with modern instruments and analog and digital sounds. They produce melodies that sound so familiar, using rebab, clarinet and classical guitar. They will perform at Salon on Dec. 2 at 10:30 p.m. one more time after their previous concert, the whole tickets of which were sold out.
