A contemporary, improvisational practice inspired by traditional Anatolian song.

Jazz ensemble Mycorrhizal takes inspiration from traditional Turkish melodies, applying an improvisational lens to their practice. Turkish born guitarist, composer and arranger Onur Puza’s dynamic career spans over two decades across Turkey, Europe and Australia. Their union is a continuation of what began as a cultural art project for the American Embassy in Turkey.
