Press Snippets: Making an Impact with Tarkan

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Screencap of reportGerman newspaper Kreiszeitung has ran an article asking its readers their names for the singers that made an impact on musical history, with the paper deciding to include a comment from one female reader contributing Tarkan's name to the list for his impact on Turkish music (see left pic).

Meanwhile, in two news reports covering Tarkan, newspaper Sabah reports that the young in Iran listen to Tarkan, while paper Hürriyet writes that Israeli tourists to Antalya in Turkey were greeted with Tarkan's signature tune "Şımarık" (Ölürüm Sana, 1997).

And finally, there are reports that Turkish public broadcaster the TRT has opened a new station in Arabic, TRT 7, by broadcasting the video single to Tarkan's rendition of Turkish folk song "Uzun Ince Bir Yoldayım" (Dudu/2003).

UPDATE: "TRT did not start with Tarkan" (April) >>
