Serkan Çağri is one of the most popular and highly-regarded clarinetists in Turkey today. He is joined by a seven-member band, and together, they create upbeat folk music that explores the rhythm of the Balkans and the pulse of the Mediterranean.
Çağri began playing the clarinet at the age of seven. After winning special recognition in a prestigious national clarinet competition in his early teens, he honed his craft in Turkey’s finest music conservatories. Since that time, Çağri has played solo, with bands and ensembles and with some of the world’s finest musicians. In addition, the world’s leading clarinet manufacturers commissioned him to redesign the pitch of the instrument, resulting in a new clarinet titled the “Serkan Çağri” model.
Today he is a popular composer and musical director for film and television. He also hosts his own music series on Turkish national television and is featured in the May 2013 episode of the PBS series Music Voyager.
