Variously described by reviewers as "trippy", "dreamy", "cinematic", "stylishly hip" and "deeply exotic", award-winning Turkish-Canadian world music group Minor Empire has racked up a lengthy list of plaudits for its seamless blend of Turkish traditional music and modern sounds. Its debut album, Second Nature, earned it a Canadian Folk Music Award for World Group of the Year, an Indie Music Award for Favourite World Artist of the Year and a nomination for the World Music Readers Choice Award. The band has showcased its captivating blend of ethereal vocals and trancey, trip-hop-inspired arrangements at prominent venues such as Yoshi’s in San Francisco, National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Banff Centre, Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, Hillside Festival, Luminato Festival, Vancouver Folk Music Festival and Calgary Folk Music Festival.
