About Kenan Tülek:
Kenan Tülek began learning the Bağlama independently at a young age. Through lessons in various cultural centers, he gained an insight into traditional Anatolian folk music. From the very beginning, he has been interested in the various playing techniques, especially the innovative Şelpe playing technique. His technical skills were refined by the master Erdal Erzincan, with whom he attended numerous courses. He also researched the traditional Alevi music of Anatolia on site. Tülek studied Bachelor and Master of Music on the instrument Bağlama at Codarts Rotterdam University for Arts and Istanbul Teknik Üniversitesi (ITÜ). Tülek also publishes textbooks, such as "Playing the Bağlama, The Şelpe Technique" in 2018 and "Playing the Bağlama, The Tezene Technique" in 2019.
