Selda Bağcan is a legendary Turkish singer and political activist. Her first singles, about political struggle and the demands of the working class, sold over 1 million copies. Selda’s psychedelic interpretations of traditional Turkish folk music and her political views have lost Selda her passport and caused her to be repeatedly imprisoned during the 70s and 80s.

Although performances by Selda are rare, she was the main guest of Le Guess Who? Festival 2014 in Utrecht, The Netherlands; a cooperation with Gulbaba Music. Here, she gave an equally joyous as emotional performance. St. Vincent and tUnE-yArDs, both admirers of the singer, performed before she took the stage.
“The iconic Turkish protest singer convinced a room full of people, to dance, hug, and cry. If that’s not festival magic, I don’t know what is.” - MTV Iggy

Le Guess Who? is very proud to be able to share the recordings of this captivating performance as a one-time, limited edition vinyl release of just 500 copies. Listen to 'Adaletin Bu Mu Dünya?' below:
