Hikâye 07:45
Lyrics: Uzun bir hikâye Biraz saf, biraz asi Biraz da kırılgan Anlatılan Bir ses bir iç çekiş Usulca duyulan Zaman ötesinde Yankılanan Kabus ortasında Uykudan uyanmış Bir çocuk misali Haykırılan Bir gün biterse Hikâye, üzülme Hayat geçse de Aşktır kalan English translation It’s a long tale A little naïve, a little rebellious And a little tender A sound, a sigh Which is heard discreetly Which echoes through time A tale that gets wailed Like a child Who has just awoken In the midst of a nightmare If, one day, this tale reaches an end Do not be upset Even though life goes away It is love that remains

Kuyu 07:26
Lyrics: Yüreğin bir kuyu, derin ve suskun Aşk da acı da yüreğin kadar Kağıt üzerinde uzanıp yatan Hangi söze sığar bunca hayal Bir an, geç kalmışçasına Kanat çırpar kuşlar Rüzgar dağılır da gider Irmak hızla akar Bir gün gelir, bir gün geçer mi dersin? İçindeki daimi sorular Kim görmüş de kim getirmiş ki haber Karşıdaki karanlık kıyıdan ENGLISH TRANSLATION Your heart is a well, deep and quiet Love and pain, just as your heart How will all this longing fit into Words that spread on a piece of paper? One moment, as though they are late The birds start flapping their wings The wind scatters and takes off The river flows in a hurry Do you think one day they come, and one day they go, Those eternal questions inside you? Who has seen and who has brought news from The dark shore across?

Bulut 06:51
LYRICS: Masmavi, açık ve berrak Bir gökyüzüne Denizlerden yükselen Dalgadan doğan bulutuz Ay ışığında parlayan Bir dolu hasret Belki su, belki toprak Belki şiirdir yolumuz Yağmur ertesi Bir tohumun neşesi Rengarenk bir serüven Yaşam dediğimiz oyun ENGLISH TRANSLATION: We are clouds, born of waves Rising from the seas Toward clear blue skies A pile of longing That sparkles in moonlight Our destination is perhaps the water, perhaps the earth, Perhaps a poem The joy of a seed After the rain A multicolored journey This game, we call life

about

A Twice Told Tale

One fine autumn day in late September, Santi (from Asunción, Paraguay) and Tuğçe (from Istanbul, Turkey) have crossed paths in a small town in the middle of the “heartland” US. From this moment on, their lives have become webs of inquiry and revelation as they have jointly devoted forces to mastering the art of musical storytelling. Drawing on a wide palette of ideas and influences, Santi & Tuğçe have created an enchanting world with their music in which the characters are driven by passion and a zest for life. A world where mythical creatures return home after an epic quest to an island surrounded by land, where a wise woman prepares potions to heal the poet, the dreamer, and the disillusioned; where planets collide and create new patterns in the cosmic swirl; where two starry-eyed lovers sail away on a sea turtle spaceship to places unknown; and where self-aware, compassionate robots resolve ancient paradoxes in their mission to rescue humanity.

On this fine autumn day, thirteen years after their fortuitous encounter, Santi & Tuğçe, now based in the ‘center of electronic music’ Berlin, present their latest musical odyssey: “A Twice Told Tale”. Filled with unmistakable charm and complexity, “A Twice Told Tale” conjures up stories that connect with something deep within the listener. Told with emotional intensity and intricacy, these are songs for and about everyone.

The first track, “Hikâye” (“Tale”) tells a long tale, a tale that is “a little naïve, a little rebellious, and a little tender”. Life is fleeting, leaves will fall, colors will fade, and before we know it, it will be time to depart from this beautiful earth. Yet the tale we have lived to tell and the love we have lived for will remain.

The second track, “Kuyu” (“The Well”), offers a peak into the deep, invisible corners of the heart, full of yearning and eternal questions, to which no one knows the answers. After all, “who has seen and who has brought news from the dark shore across?”

The third track, “Bulut” (“Cloud”), describes the perpetual cycle of change and metamorphosis in nature through the imagery of a playful cloud that rises from the seas to clear blue skies, and goes on a multicolored journey “perhaps towards the water, perhaps towards the earth, or perhaps towards a poem”.
