Check out some recent concert reviews:

Watching the Mehmet Polat Trio in their Lincoln Center became formidably clear was that these are three of the best musicians in the world on their respective instruments. They push the envelope as far as Middle Eastern and African music go, they do it with gravitas, and virtuosity, and soul, and made good on Polat’s promise to draw the audience into their magical interchanges and improvisations, holding what appeared to be a full house in a near dream-state for over an hour. - New York Music Daily, USA (LIVE at Lincoln Center NYC)

With this music may your soul find peace and joy, the pieces of the Mehmet Polat Trio entice you to dream and almost to meditate. Mehmet Polat Trio's music has the potential to make this world a better place. – Frankenpost, Germany (LIVE at Textilemuseum, Helmbrechts)
