Okan Ersan’s quartet with keyboardist Serkan Özyilmaz, bassist Eylem Pelit and drummer Volkan Öktem performs an original seven-part suite full of electronic excitement, colorful ensembles, and individual heroics. Okan Ersan, a powerful guitarist and an imaginative composer, debuts a seven-piece work on Nibiru inspired by a signal received in 1977 that is believed to be the first ever transmission from outer space. The most suitable music to depict a journey through the galaxies and the vastness of space is futuristic jazz fusion, an area that the guitarist explores with keyboardist Serkan Özyilmaz, bassist Eylem Pelit and drummer Volkan Öktem during the ambitious project. Named after the mythical planet Nibiru, the program gives listeners an uncharted perspective of the universe along with some dazzling music. Each of its seven chapters tells a different outer space story.
