“It is fortunate that Yaşar Kemal has passed away from this world”
Feryal Öney, one of the soloists of Kardeş Türçiler, said, “We are all here today because we love Yaşar Kemal so much. Yaşar Kemal told us very well about people and his opposition to war. That's why we read his works with pleasure. It was very nice to read the story in all our songs from Yaşar Kemal. We always remember him with love and respect in our hearts. It is good that Yaşar Kemal has passed away from this world”.
The texts of the great master Yaşar Kemal, which were read by the group members and describing the culture, people, nature and geography of Anatolia, received great applause. Throughout the concert, the people of Izmir, accompanying Kardes Turkuler in unison, did not sit down in the section where the tempo increased. At the end of the concert, the whole hall gave a standing ovation to Kardes Türküsü for several minutes.
