Biography

Moğollar is one of the pioneer bands in Turkish rock music for about 40 years and one of the founders of Turkish ethno rock music (or Anatolian rock music). The major goal of the band is to prove that folk music has a multi-layered soul and folk music’s dynamism is very close to pop music’s dynamism. The band members (Aziz Azmet, Cahit Berkay, Taner Ongur, Engin Yorukoglu and Murat Ses) tried to fuse the technical aspects of pop music with the melodies of ancient Anatolian folk music in late 1960s and early 1970s.

Cahit Berkay, Taner Öngür and Engin Yörükoğlu reformed the band in 1993, and were joined by keyboard player Serhat Ersöz. Murat Ses is dealing with other projects and is still pursuing an extraordinary international career.

The group won the Grand Prix du Disque (previously won by such groups as Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix) in 1971.

Murat Ses (the group’s keyboardist, arranger and composer) work and composition Ağrı Dağı Efsanesi (The Legend of Mount Ararat) was inspired by ancient legends of ‘the Flood’ in different cultures. In live versions over ten minutes he made use of diverse FX possibilities of his time to tell a sonic story with his keyboards.

    Self titled from '76 is a masterpiece. Unequivocal and almost ridiculously composed tunes, compromising both Turkish and 'Western' aesthetics. It just makes me feel a little proud to be from Turkey. Sorry for this pretentiousness, but it's just great.

    Moğollar'ın kurucu üyelerinden Engin Yörükoğlu dört yıldır savaştığı amansız hastalığa yenik düştü ve bu sabah hayatını yitirdi. Ruhu şad olsun.. Moğollar'ın ve tüm sevenlerinin başı sağolsun...

    Moğollar'ın son albümleri "Umut Yolunu Bulur"daki "Çaya Kaç Şeker" ve "Geri Sar" mükemmel parçalar...
