Taner Öngür, Bass player of the Anatolian Rock band Moğollar
The band Makas stands out within the new generation of the Anationial Rock genre with the music they make. Instead of simply using the sounds of the Anatolian rock of the ‘70’s they have found their success with their original sound and content. Besides using Western rock instruments, they use Anatolian instruments such as the Yayli Tanbur (a string instrument). This instrument has been used before by legendary musicians such as: Cahit Berkay, Ohannes Kemer and Cudi Koyuncu.
Shortly said, MAKAS is one of the most important representatives of the Anatolian rock genre of today.
