Description
One fine autumn day in late September, Santi (from Asunción, Paraguay) and Tuğçe (from Istanbul, Turkey) have crossed paths in a small town in the middle of the “heartland” US. From this moment on, their lives have become webs of inquiry and revelation as they have jointly devoted forces to mastering the art of musical storytelling. Drawing on a wide palette of ideas and influences, Santi & Tuğçe have created an enchanting world with their music in which the characters are driven by passion and a zest for life. A world where mythical creatures return home after an epic quest to an island surrounded by land, where a wise woman prepares potions to heal the poet, the dreamer, and the disillusioned; where planets collide and create new patterns in the cosmic swirl; where two starry-eyed lovers sail away on a sea turtle spaceship to places unknown; and where self-aware, compassionate robots resolve ancient paradoxes in their mission to rescue humanity. On this fine autumn day in late September, thirteen years after their fortuitous encounter, Santi & Tuğçe, now based in the ‘center of electronic music’ Berlin, present their latest musical odyssey: “A Twice Told Tale”. Filled with unmistakable charm and complexity, “A Twice Told Tale” conjures up stories that connect with something deep within the listener. Told with emotional intensity and intricacy, these are songs for and about everyone. The first single from this EP, “Hikâye” tells a long tale, a tale that is “a little naïve, a little rebellious, and a little tender”. Life is fleeting, leaves will fall, colors will fade, and before we know it, it will be time to depart from this beautiful earth. Yet the tale we have lived to tell and the love we have lived for will remain.
Lyrics
Uzun bir hikâye Biraz saf, biraz asi Biraz da kırılgan Anlatılan Bir ses bir iç çekiş Usulca duyulan Zaman ötesinde Yankılanan Kabus ortasında Uykudan uyanmış Bir çocuk misali Haykırılan Bir gün biterse Hikâye, üzülme Hayat geçse de Aşktır kalan (English): It’s a long tale A little naïve, a little rebellious And a little tender A sound, a sigh Which is heard discreetly Which echoes through time A tale that gets wailed Like a child Who has just awoken In the midst of a nightmare If, one day, this tale reaches an end Do not be upset Even though life goes away It is love that remains
