Embracing numerous musical genres and a fresh blend of traditional Turkish and Western rock music, hard rock quartet maNga are ready to storm the U.S. Feat singer Ferman Akgül, guitarist Yagmur Sarigül (aka “Yamyam”), drummer Özgür Can Öney and bassist Cem Bahtiyar, the Turkish group have drawn Int'l acclaim for the infectious sounds on their three albums, which one could compare in spirit to Linkin Park or System Of A Down. They made a big noise representing their from home country in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest, have over 3M Facebook followers and have drawn the attention of Billboard, the Huffington Post and MTV Europe. The band name maNga possesses a dual meaning. In Turkish, it refers to a unit of ten men in the army, and in Japanese, which was their chief inspiration for using the word, it means graphic novel. "The name was Yagmur's idea, and from that moment 12 years ago we were dreaming about having connections to other countries," declares Özgür. The foursome finally got to play before a NA audience at the SXSW festival in TX in March, and they play CMJ on Oct 18th. 3 months after they formed in 2001, the group competed on the TV show Sing Your Song, which is the Turkish version of Star Search. Their 2nd place showing ignited a creative spark that lead to numerous gigs in Turkey while writing the original tunes that comprised their self-titled debut album, which was released via Sony Epic in Turkey in December 2004. The album and its videos spotlighted an amalgam of heavy rock, hip-hop, pop and Turkish music.The album sold more than 180,000 copies in Turkey, making maNga the 1st band there to get gold certification on their debut album. The song “Bir Kadin Çizeceksin” appeared in the EA Sports FIFA 2006 computer game soundtrack, which exposed them to European audiences who loved their music even if they did not understand the words.
8:30 PM Patrick's Tuesday Night Review with Como Brothers Band Songwriting is our primary focus. For us, writing songs is a daily obsession. We want to write songs that are original, creative, and have integrity. Right now, we are recording our first full length album at VuDu Studios in Port Jefferson, NY. The 12 tracks on the album are coming together really well! We are planning to release this debut album sometime in mid 2013.
We are very excited about all of our plans for 2013! In February, we opened for Jillian Jensen at 89 North Music Venue, played at the Hard Rock Café NYC in the Hard Rock Rising 2013 Finals, and opened for Frankie Zulferino at the Highline Ballroom in NYC. In March, we performed on Balcony TV Charleston and did an on-air interview/performance for a local radio station in Columbia SC. Our music has been placed on MTV's Real World Portland which will air on March 27th. The instrumental version of our song "Your Love" has been placed in ads. for Quicksilver. Three of our songs will also be on the soundtrack of the new Indie movie Wingman Inc., which is coming out later this year.
