Okan Ersan Uses Guitar Pro jazz / cyprus
Born in 1972 on the Northern part of Cyprus, Okan ERSAN had the distinctive opportunity to be influenced by the melodies of the east ethnic beats and roots of the oriental Mediterranean.
Following his BA degree in classical music, Okan Ersan then blended rock and jazz to create the eclectic fusion of the grooves and exclusive sounds he platforms his music on today.
Blending different styles, Okan Ersan's music has evolved to produce this rare fusion of the genres. Okan Ersan has taken on this difficult task of fusing all of these disciplines into a music that makes the listener appreciate the complexities; yet relax in its momentum...
Outstanding musicians like Dave Weckl (mixed 'The Reborn Journey') and Legendary Ernie Watts have contributed their talents to this fusion of tunes. Okan Ersan strives to introduce the world to his passionate interpretation of life and as Dave Weckle cited, "this CD has the potential to make a lot of noise in the world of jazz fusion- its fresh and different!"
International vendors noticed the locally recognized musician's exceptional talent in 2002 where he was featured as one of the best 5 guitarists of 2003 in the British magazine “The Guitarist”. He then went on to write and compose his first fusion album “To Whom it may Concern”.
