“Introducing” will feature modern guitarists you should meet, who may appear in the “Spotlight” later.

We start the series with Bilal, a Turkish player currently featured in the September issue Guitar Player magazine’s section “Four New Electric Players of Note.”

In 2009  Karaman was awarded the first prize at Nardis-Yamaha Jazz Guitar Competition. The 28 year old Karaman lives in Istanbul, playing in Turkey and Europe, Teaching workshops, masterclasses,and privately. His unique style includes classical, electronic and fretless guitar.  Karaman aims to carry the Turkish Music to a different level, using modal melodic motives, modern melodies and improvisations in his compositions.
