His career is fresh, his mind even younger and his view of artistic things innovative. Everything, in particular everything connected with his professional career, kicked off in 2014, when the young artist İlyas Yalçıntaş won his compatriots’ hearts with the song “İncir” during that year’s Turkish “X Factor” (TV programme).
İlyas Yalçıntaş from Turkey, has won many awards including the Golden Butterfly Best New Artist prize.
Right now and only less than four years after he began his musical career, he is expected to travel to Athens in order to film his new video clip.
This is not the first time that Yalçıntaş is going to do filming work in Athens, Greece, as his “İçimdeki Duman”, song, the seventh bestselling behind Tarkan on digital platforms in 2017, was also filmed in Greece. That one, has been watched over 100 million times on YouTube. Moreover, his “Gel Be Gökyüzüm” singing creation has the seventh bestselling behind Tarkan on digital platforms in 2017.
When asked why such a choice, “Why Greece?”, he replied that “My director Hasan Kuyucu’s wife is Greek. Most of all it was their influence. However, I have been going there more often, both for work and for music videos. I have been to other countries for work and visits. But here the warmth and interest from both my people and from Greeks are truly very different. I love Greece. This will be my second music video in Greece. I come here regularly outside making videos. I now have friends here, and my visits have to do more with visiting my friends than going on holidays. Besides Turkey, this is one of the few places I feel at home.”…/IBNA
