about

Istanbul’a is a song written for the ancient city Istanbul that evokes timeless questions: Can one ever leave behind one’s home? Can one ever truly arrive at a home that was once abandoned yet never quite forgotten?

The original version of this haunting track was first released in 2017 in the aftermath of political events that filled the city with grave uncertainty, much like the current moment in which we find ourselves. Even more so than at the time of its original release, today Istanbul’a captures a widespread sentiment of liminality and uprootedness that echoes all around and gains new meaning in our world as we ask: Can we go back to a past that is long gone? Will things ever be the same again?

Dunkelbunt’s version features his signature of transglobal electronic-instrumental sound that is full of energy, swing and a sense of eclecticism that is as layered as the ancient city Istanbul itself.

lyrics

İSTANBUL’A
Nereye gidersem gideyim sonunda döndüğüm
Her köşesi ayak izlerimle dolu labirent
Sende gizli durgunluğum
Her şeyi başlatan ezgisi cocukluğumun
Belki bir gün yeniden karşılaşırsak senle ben
Hic bir seyin aynı olamayacağını bilen
Ve yine de hayal eden iki eski dost gibi
Sarılacağız ve susacağız

TO ISTANBUL
Wherever I go, the one I always return to
The labyrinth whose every corner is filled with my footsteps
In you hides my stillness,
The tune of my childhood that started all
If one day, we meet again
Like two old friends who know that nothing will be the same again
And yet, who still imagine,
We will embrace and keep quiet
