Esmerim Bicim Bicim is a Turkish traditional song popularised by, among others, famed Turkish singers, Ibrahim Tatlises and Izzet Altimese. This somewhat slower version was taught to Mark by his friend and fellow Australian reedman, Linsey Pollak, in the 1980s. Esmerim is a slow burner over which Kristiina provides a scat vocal in duet with Mark’s soprano sax.
