    Dear Beyza
    Eince yesterday I have a terrible cold which is turning into flu. It would not be fair to come and spread my germs even if I felt well enough to come. So I shall decline

    • Beyza Gurer S.

      Sorry to hear. Take care of yourself
      Hope to see you soon

    Hi all. It's going to be full and seated tickets are sold out online now. Beyza is holding some seated tickets so if you need a seat you should contact her to reserve your place. Standing room is still available.

    "Mortissa" isimli albümünü Deezer'da dinledim, Ege ve Yunan ezgileri ağırlıklı gayet başarılı. "to Dervisaki" isimli parça da rakı eşliğinde favorilerimden olacak gibi !
