 Re: Gypsy / Turkish music approach

Hi, JT!
There is a multi-instrumentalist in Sydney by the name of Yuri Halay who played on the CD "Keklik Aile" with Linda Marr and Elias Ellis (and some guests). On that particular recording he played clarinet, baglama, murli, kaval, domra and oud, and there are plenty of both Greek and Turkish pieces. He is actually of Russian descent and earlier in his career was involved with various Russian groups and early music ensembles, but latterly he's been more active in Middle Eastern circles and has played with Compania Azziz, Drum Arabic and Nakisa.
It is possible that somebody like Yuri might be able to help you more than a musician who has played only in the one tradition. Be that as it may, he would be able to recommend somebody for you, I'm sure. Elias Ellis, by the way, studied with a Turkish music teacher called Sabahattin.
The CD suggests that you can contact the band at Sorry, I have no idea whether that email address is still valid, but I imagine that Yuri Halay would be easy to track down in other ways.
Hope this might help a little!!
