"On today’s episode of The Jazz Hole, Linus interviews the fantastic Turkish Cypriot guitarist and composer Okan Ersan about his new album Nibiru, which takes listeners on a musical journey through outer space. Along with keyboardist Serkan Özyilmaz, bassist Eylem Pelit and drummer Volkan Öktem, Okan Ersan performs an original seven-part suite on Nibiru (named after the mythical planet), inspired by the so-called Wow Signal, a signal received in 1977 that is believed to be the first ever transmission from outer space. Hear Okan Ersan elaborate about the concept and about his quest for just the right futuristic fusion sound. Other music today comes from Romain Collin’s recent album “Tiny Lights…” and from “Fusiolicious” by bassist and composer Oytun Ersan (Okan Ersan’s brother!)
