Tarkan in 60th Year Celebrations
Tarkan appeared at a private concert for Turkish Garanti Bank yesterday.
Celebrating 60 years in the business with its workers, Tarkan sang live in front of an audience of 12 thousand employees at Istanbul's Olympic Stadium.
Alongside workers from Turkey, personnel from China, Holland, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Malta, Romania and Russia also attended the event, which lasted all day, beginning at eight thirty in the morning until nine in the evening.
The third largest bank in Turkey, Garanti was established as a privately owned commercial bank in Ankara in 1946. In 1983, Doğuş Group - one of Turkey's largest conglomerates with operations in processed food, retailing, contracting, financial services and tourism - acquired Garanti. In 2001, Garanti became one of the largest players in Turkish banking sector.
