The record label says: 'Levent was born Yeldirim Levent in Ankara, Turkey in 1968. Influenced by his elder brother, Ustad Misirli Ahmet, he began to play darbuka (a Turkish, ceramic-bodied drum) just after high school. After beginning his professional career in Ankara, he moved to France where he toured with French, African and Egyptian Jazz players. In Egypt, where he went together with Misirli Ahmet, he accompanied well-known national solo players including Mohammed Fuad, Eheb Temik and Muhammad Moli on their live performances and studio recordings. Levent then toured Europe with the famous Egyptian pianist Fethi Seleme’s band Sharkiyat'

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
