East meets west

An actual bridge between east and west

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.
The greatest cliche of them all: Istanbul is the city where East meets West. Whatever. But it is a good enough theme for a programme. If I had more time, I would have complied a programme that infuses Western sounds with an Eastern sensibility, or something like that. But I don't and I am also lazy. So here is a show with songs with east and west in the title.
