Cansu Kandemir

March 3, 2023

Cansu Kandemir is a singer-songwriter and keyboardist from Istanbul, currently based in Basel and accompanied by her cat. Her music and edits are richly layered and lo-fi at the same time, as if born of an immediate inspiration. In this episode of Soul Sketches, we had a nice conversation about discovering new records and sounds, about performing live and how it is not to limit oneself musically, which she also proves in her Selector's Choice mix. Thanks for listening and sharing! 🖤🎶
