Burak Kaya

Burak Kaya was born in Ankara, Turkey. He began playing classical guitar at age of 12. He played both classical guitar music and jazz standards seperately for a lond period of time. Although he took some guitar and harmony lessons, he’s mostly self-taught.

Kaya had a strong influence of world music, latin jazz and Anatolian traditional musics in his style. Instead of using amplified guitars he prefers to play nylon string classical guitar which creates a natural acoustic sound. He plays mostly in small groups such as jazz trios including double bass and percussions or duo instrument projects.
