Guitarist and composer Zafer Dilek was born in Turkey in 1945. He is best known for his arrangements of traditional folk songs. Dilek recorded a number of singles in the early to mid-Seventies that were collected on two LPs – “Oyun Havaları” and “Oyun Havaları 2“. Beyond that, there is not a whole lot of information available other than the fact that he is apparently – as of this posting – still alive. For some reason, this song – which was also covered by Erkin Koray – was left off the CD re-issue of Dilek’s music.
Catalog number YCAS-052 on Yonca Plakçilik of Istanbul, Turkey. No release date listed.
