Duriye says Dreams are full of images and soundsLet your dreams guide your journey. Carl G. Jungs studies on dreams helped her to explore to her unconscious. She was a graduate student at the University of Texas at Dallas working towards an MFA degree and began to explore this mysterious dream language using sounds. Track 6Dreamscape is a sound design of her own sleeping time dream. Dreamscapes represent her inner being inspired by sounds of dreams as well as by familiar sounds that surrounds her such as Istanbul, Dallas, and friends combining funky, groovy and eclectic contemporary jazz beats born in her Turkish roots depicting her transformational journey of dreams and fun. She started her journey in 1999 with Ayhan Sicimoglu in Istanbul Turkey, and studied Afro-Cuban rhythms. From performing with Las Estrellas in Istanbul under Ayhan Sicimoglu's Afro-Cuban Project, she has continued her journey in Dallas performing with different musicians in Latin, Jazz, Rock, Folk and Funk styles since 2004, along with her own band Duriye & Friends." Duriye says As a conga player, its been important for me to apply the fundamentals of Afro-Cuban rhythms with the right technique and discipline." Duriye worked with world known local Dallas musicians.
