    Street sounds of Berlin: Santur player Hakan Tuğrul on sharing traditional Persian music in a diverse city Dina Elsayed

 

Berlin is a vibrant place, full of diverse sights and sounds, and the city’s many buskers are a part of the scene. In a new series, we’re talking with Berlin street musicians in order to find out more about who they are and what drives them to share their music throughout the city.
