Reading Vogue magazine is one of my guilty pleasures. It is always entertaining and I find the quality of writing pretty good, but the articles are usualy quite light in nature. There have been a few times that I was very inspired by women's business stories, maternity experiences and such, but not that many. Here, I learnt that there is a Turkish Vogue which started just a year ago and I had to try. It was a great call - the issue that I had purchased had a "20 up and coming young people" section and 123 the band was there. I was intrigued. Besides their good music reviews, it was written that their CDs came with a full illustration book! I got their latest CD and then the one before it. They were refreshing and intresting. Recently, one of their shows during the jazz festival worked well for our schedule, and John and I had a date at the IKSV Salon. Beautiful venue, wonderful music. In this intimate place, their music was so much better in person, Dilara's voice so powerful. We had a great time.
