Street Musicians of Izmir

While wandering around Izmir, it is possible to come across talented street musicians on almost every corner

In Konak, Alsancak or Karşıyaka, you can see musicians playing alone or as a band at any time of the day or night.

Headed among these names is Uncle Sado, who often makes you feel nostalgic and sometimes cheers you up with the tunes flowing from his clarinet:

Group Zakir, on the other hand, appears mostly on the streets of Karşıyaka:

Although we do not think it is possible, if you do not come across a street musician while visiting İzmir during daylight hours, we recommend that you turn your route to the lawns in Alsancak and Cyprus Martyrs Street after the sun goes down. You can listen to talented street musicians, chat with them, and even sing together!
