Biography

Hasan Esen, Turkish kemençe, rebab, and santur player, was born in Sivas in 1958. Esen was classically trained at a state music conservatory, where he studied kemençe music. Additionally, Esen studied kemençe with Ihsan Özgen, considered one of the most skillful and creative performers of kemençe among his generation (Özgen was born in Urfa in 1942). Branching out from Turkish classical (art) music, Esen also studied and performed the music of the Turkish Mevlevi Sufi Order, particularly that of Turkey’s Sufi Sema, or ritual ceremony (originally developed by the 13th-century mystic and poet, Rumi). Esen has toured around the world, giving concerts in countries that include the United States, Germany, Britain, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Finland, Greece, China, Pakistan, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Russia, Brazil, and Canada.

Hasan Esen has performed as a member of the Suleyman Erguner Quartet. Suleyman Erguner is considered one of the world’s foremost Turkish (reed flute) players. Together with two other musicians, Esen and Suleyman Erguner recorded music based on the Turkish Sufi Sema (spiritual ceremony developed by the 13th century Sufi mystic and poet, Rumi).
