History of the band began in 1994 in Istanbul. Musicians of Mavigiz are playing ancient Turkish instruments, beloved by the people, shrouded in legends and traditions, glorified in fairy tales. These are baglama, which accompanied itinerant poets from the old times, and flute with special design — kaval. They sound together with guitar, and therefore in band’s repertoire Turkish music tradition combines with modern motives: trio plays folk songs, which are several hundred years’ old, and new compositions. Ukrainian audience first heard Mavigiz from the stage of international festival ArtPole-2013, and the band gained a lot of passionate fans.

What do Turkish songs sing about? What do titles Telli Turnam, Derdim Çoktur, Hata Benim mean? What wood is the fingerboard of baglama made from and how did shepherd with kaval defeat the devil? Answers to these questions will lead you through the world of Turkish music and, probably, help to guess Blue Secret, because precisely this is the translation of the band’s name.
