New York – Hot on the heels of the massive success at the “Istanbulive: The Sounds & Colors of Turkey” at Central Park Summer Stage on June 27, 2009, seminal Turkish pop/folk/rock band MFO are coming back to the US for a 6-date tour across the nation. Mazhar Fuat Özkan (or MFO) has been an institution in Turkey for more than 30 years, although their roots can be traced all the way back to 1966, when Mazhar Alanson and Fuat Güner met over a mutual love of the Beatles. By the 1970s, with Özkan Ugur now among their ranks, MFÖ began their award-winning reign. With sentimental as well as humorous lyrics that speak to the lives of the Turkish people—and a richly harmonic folk-rock sound that has been compared to Crosby, Stills & Nash and Simon & Garfunkel Mazhar Fuat Özkan remains one of the most respected bands in Turkey.The MFO US tour is supported by Yeni Raki, the Turkish Ministry of Culture & Tourism and New York Conculate General of the Republic of Turkey as part of its ongoing efforts to promote Turkey as a destination country.. US tour is produced by Serdar Ilhan, veteran of the New York concert scene whose mission is to introduce the music of Turkey to America through event. , showcases and educational programs.
