Biography

Müslüm Gürses (real name Müslüm Akbaş) is a Turkish folk singer born in 7th May, 1953 and died on 3rd March, 2013. He mostly sings Turkish folk and Ottoman classical music, with an arabesque style. His talent and his special style have put him to a different place among other folk singers. In his songs he mostly expresses sorrow and painful feelings. He is considered a cult figure in Turkish folk music and has a very dedicated group of fans, most of whom being young, low-income urban people. He is mostly called Müslüm Baba ( means ‘Father Müslüm’ in turkish ) among them.

In recent years, as he was known for sensitive personality, he recieved requests from Turkish Rock and Pop singers such as Bülent Ortaçgil and Teoman to cover their songs with his unique style. With public demand, and also because he couldn’t turn down his fans, in conjuction with Turkish gay poet Murathan Mungan, he released and album called “Aşk Tesadüfleri Sever” entirely of covers from popular rock and pop songs, such as Garbage - The World is Not Enough (Bir Ömür Yetmez) and Rainbow - Temple of the King (Affet).
