OKAY TEMIZ picture
Born in 1939, in Istanbul, Okay Temiz started taking percussion and tympanum courses at the State Conservatoire of Classical Music in Ankara. Launching his professional musical career in 1955, Temiz continued his studies at the Tophane Art Institute.

In 1967, the Swedish saga started. There he met trumpeter Maffy Falay. The two formed the group “Sevda.” In the meanwhile, he met the American trumpet master Don Cherry. This turned into a long lasting partnership. Temiz, together with the skilled bassist Dyani and the South African trumpeter Mongezi Feza, formed the group Xaba, which makes up a crucial part of his musical career. This very special group shortly gained an immense public attention with the three albums released in Scandinavia, U.S.A and Britain.

Forming his Swedish-Turkish Jazz group, Oriental Wind, in 1974, Okay Temiz surged further into multi-cultural music and reached a very appealing synthesis by blending European musical instruments with Turkish instruments.
