Biography

Salih Nazım Peker – Divane, kopuz, cura, vocals.

Salih Korkut Peker – Cümbüş, acoustic guitar, vocals.

Salih Nazım Peker and Salih Korkut Peker, who brought folk music with experimental and innovative interpretations into different forms until today, came together in the acoustic project “Duble Salih”.

Following their first post, a prisoner song “Mahpushane Çeşmesi” in Youtube, “Duble Salih” has reached a massive list of fans by drawing attention with their interpretation of “Mican Zeybeği”  which was also published in the most popular Turkish tv serie called “Çukur”.

Duble Salih renders folk tunes from Anatolia (Minor Asia) and Rumeli (Southeastern Balkans) using mostly “cümbüş” and “divane” which are relatively new folk instruments of Turkish music. In their interpretations combining traditional performances with rembetiko, flamenco, blues and bluegrass interactions, they try to touch the earth in the context of pure acoustic and simple arrangements.
