Latif Bolat, a well-known Turkish musician and folk music singer in the United States, was invited to perform in UAB’s Hulsey Hall by the Birmingham International Center (BIC) as an event for Spotlight on Turkey. Free to everyone, the event took place on Saturday, October 23, 2010. Mr. Bolat sang and played the Saz, a century old Turkish instrument, and the piano, introduced the audience to a reading of Turkish poetry, which he often translated. His wonderful performance led to a pleading audience for an encore. After the concert, a reception, catered by the TAAA, was held for the attendants.
