#### ï¿½elik -Selam Sï¿½yle

BEN ï¿½ELï¿½Kï¿½. 12 Mayï¿½s 1966 yï¿½lï¿½nda ï¿½stanbul, Silahtarï¿½da doï¿½dum. Boï¿½a burcuyum. ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½i bir babanï¿½n evladï¿½yï¿½m. Babamï¿½n mesleï¿½i terzilik iken, iï¿½leri kï¿½tï¿½ gitmiï¿½, o zaman Sï¿½tlï¿½ceï¿½de olan Arï¿½elik fabrikasï¿½nda iï¿½ bulmuï¿½. Fabrikanï¿½n bize uï¿½ur getirdiï¿½ine inandï¿½klarï¿½ iï¿½in adï¿½mï¿½ ï¿½ï¿½elikï¿½ koymuï¿½lar. Ne yazï¿½k ki babam emekli olduktan sonra bir gï¿½n Arï¿½elik ï¿½ayï¿½rova tesislerine gitti ve orada vefat eti. Cenazesini oradan aldï¿½k. O yï¿½zden ï¿½iyi ki baban AEGï¿½de iï¿½ bulmamï¿½ï¿½ yoksa adï¿½n AEG olurduï¿½ tarzï¿½ndaki soï¿½uk esprileri sevemiyorum. Baba tarafï¿½ndan Arnavutï¿½um. ï¿½skï¿½dar kï¿½tï¿½ï¿½ï¿½nde iki yï¿½z seneye kadar giden aile kaydï¿½mï¿½z var. Yani sï¿½kï¿½ inatï¿½ï¿½yï¿½m, acï¿½yï¿½ da Arnavut biberini de ï¿½ok severim. Sofrada ï¿½tï¿½kï¿½nmayï¿½ï¿½ deï¿½il de sohbeti esas alan ï¿½oï¿½lum sofraya karnï¿½nï¿½ doyur da oturï¿½ tarzï¿½ndaki Arnavut geleneï¿½ini seviyorum. Anne tarafï¿½m Sinop, Ayancï¿½k, Ali kï¿½yï¿½nden, yani ï¿½yarï¿½m Lazï¿½ denen tayfadanï¿½m galiba. Kï¿½saca her iki tarafï¿½nda ï¿½zelliklerini aslan gibi aldï¿½ï¿½ï¿½mï¿½ sï¿½yleyebilirim. Kafam kï¿½zï¿½nca Laz, inat edince Arnavut oluyorum galiba ve eminim ikisini bir arada gï¿½rmek istemezsiniz ve sizin gï¿½zï¿½nï¿½zde televizyonlardaki halim ile kalmayï¿½ tercih ederim. ï¿½lkokulu Pendik Sï¿½reyya Paï¿½a ï¿½lkokulu'nda okudum. Sevil Tufan isminde bir ï¿½ï¿½retmenim vardï¿½, ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ncï¿½ sï¿½nï¿½fta ï¿½imdi bilemediï¿½im bir nedenle okuldan ayrï¿½ldï¿½, ben baï¿½ka bir ï¿½ï¿½retmenle okumak zorunda kaldï¿½m ve bu bana ï¿½ok zor geldi, onu ne kadar sevdiï¿½imi ve ï¿½u anda bu sayfaya yazdï¿½ï¿½ï¿½mda bile onu ne kadar ï¿½zlediï¿½imi biliyor mudur acaba? Liseyi Pendik Lisesi'nde ama biraz zor tamamladï¿½m. Lise son sï¿½nï¿½fta on ï¿½ï¿½ ders ile bï¿½tï¿½nlemeye girdim, on birini verdim, ikisi kaldï¿½, ï¿½ok ï¿½ikï¿½yet ettiï¿½imiz hï¿½kï¿½metlerin ï¿½ï¿½kardï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ af olmasaydï¿½, ï¿½u an halim nasï¿½l olurdu Allah bilir? Anadolu ï¿½niversitesi Maliye Bï¿½lï¿½mï¿½'nï¿½ kazandï¿½m ama ailemden gizli olarak konservatuar sï¿½navlarï¿½na girdim. Bï¿½ylece akademik kariyerim1985'te ï¿½Tï¿½ Tï¿½rk Musikisi Devlet Konservatuarï¿½, Temel Bilimler Bï¿½lï¿½mï¿½'nde kontrbas eï¿½itimi ile baï¿½ladï¿½. Akademik kariyerim gibi profesyonel kariyerimde hï¿½zlï¿½ baï¿½ladï¿½. ï¿½Alaylï¿½ï¿½ denilen iï¿½in hamallï¿½k kï¿½smï¿½nda ï¿½ok da ciddi sï¿½rï¿½nerek ama bir yandan da Taksim- Maksim gazino sahnesinde, Elma Kabarede Mï¿½jdat Gezen, Rahmetli Cenk Koray, Ayï¿½en Gruda gibi ï¿½ok bï¿½yï¿½k isimlerle ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½ma imkanï¿½ buldum. Bir yandan akademik eï¿½itimimi sï¿½rdï¿½rï¿½yordum bir yandan mï¿½zikal ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½malarï¿½mda ï¿½ok hï¿½rslï¿½ bir ï¿½ekilde kendime yol bulmaya ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½ï¿½yordum. Babamï¿½n vefat ettiï¿½i gï¿½nï¿½n ertesi gecesinde kardeï¿½im Argun ve Ercan Saatci ile Yeï¿½ilkï¿½yï¿½de sahne almak zorundaydï¿½m. Ercan o gecemize ï¿½ahittir. Hepimiz tek tek bu zor gï¿½nleri aï¿½maya ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½ï¿½rken ï¿½zel ve Ercan ile bir araya gelerek ï¿½ZEL ï¿½ELï¿½K ERCAN grubunu kurduk. ï¿½zledim albï¿½mï¿½n ï¿½ï¿½kardï¿½k ve aynï¿½ sene Hï¿½rriyet gazetesi tarafï¿½ndan Yï¿½lï¿½n grubu ï¿½dï¿½lï¿½ne layï¿½k gï¿½rï¿½ldï¿½k. Bu grubun oluï¿½umu sï¿½rasï¿½nda Ufuk Yï¿½ldï¿½rï¿½mï¿½ï¿½n mï¿½zikal desteï¿½ini sï¿½ylemeden geï¿½emeyeceï¿½im.. ï¿½ï¿½hreti yeni tanï¿½maya baï¿½larken bir yandan da ï¿½Tï¿½ Sosyal Bilimler Enstitï¿½sï¿½nde Yï¿½ksek Lisansï¿½mï¿½ tamamladï¿½m ve yï¿½ksek notla bitirdiï¿½im iï¿½in de yine ï¿½Tï¿½ Sosyal Bilimlerde doktora hakkï¿½ kazandï¿½m. ï¿½htimal ki erken kibir, ï¿½ï¿½marï¿½klï¿½k belki de tecrï¿½besizlikten dolayï¿½ ï¿½imdilerde ï¿½ok aradï¿½ï¿½ï¿½m arkadaï¿½larï¿½mdan ayrï¿½larak kariyerimi tek sï¿½rdï¿½rme kararï¿½ aldï¿½m. Bu benim ï¿½z eleï¿½tirim. Sï¿½rasï¿½yla 1994 Ateï¿½teyim, 1995 Benimle kal, 1996 Yaman sevda, 1997 Sevdan gï¿½zï¿½mï¿½n bebeï¿½i, 1998 Sevgilerimle, 1999 Onu dï¿½ï¿½ï¿½nï¿½rken, 2000 Unutamam, 2001 Sekizinci - 8 ï¿½nci, 2002 Yol, 2003 Affet, 2005 Gariban, 2006 Kod adï¿½ aï¿½k, 2011 Kalp gï¿½zï¿½, 2012 yï¿½lï¿½nda Milat ve 2013 yï¿½lï¿½nda Best Of ï¿½elik olmak ï¿½zere toplam 16 albï¿½me imza atï¿½m. Benimle kal albï¿½mdeki ï¿½Hercaiï¿½ isimli ï¿½arkï¿½mla Kral Tv tarafï¿½ndan yï¿½lï¿½n bestecisi, Hï¿½rriyet gazetesi tarafï¿½ndan ise yï¿½lï¿½n en iyi pop mï¿½zik sanatï¿½ï¿½ ï¿½dï¿½lï¿½ ile onurlandï¿½rï¿½ldï¿½m. Tï¿½m ï¿½arkï¿½larï¿½mï¿½ ve sï¿½zlerimi kendim yaparken ï¿½zel ï¿½elikï¿½zï¿½ï¿½n kariyerinde ï¿½ok ï¿½nemli bir yer tutan ï¿½Kï¿½zï¿½mï¿½z olacaktï¿½ï¿½ isimli ï¿½arkï¿½yï¿½ da onunla paylaï¿½maktan mutluluk duydum. Aynï¿½ ï¿½ekilde benim iï¿½in Tï¿½rk Pop Mï¿½ziï¿½inin dahi ï¿½ocuklarï¿½ndan biri olan Ufuk Yï¿½ldï¿½rï¿½m albï¿½mlerinde de ï¿½arkï¿½larï¿½mï¿½ paylaï¿½tï¿½m. En son ï¿½Sen yoluna ben yolumaï¿½ isimli ï¿½arkï¿½mï¿½ da Tï¿½rkiyeï¿½nin en iyi yorumcusu olduï¿½una inandï¿½ï¿½ï¿½m Ebru Gï¿½ndeï¿½ ile paylaï¿½tï¿½m. 8 ï¿½nci isimli albï¿½mï¿½mde ï¿½ok ï¿½nemli mï¿½zik adamlarï¿½yla ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½tï¿½m ve kendi adï¿½ma neler yapabileceï¿½imi zevkle gï¿½rdï¿½m. Bunlara arasï¿½nda ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½tï¿½ï¿½ï¿½mï¿½z yï¿½l Grammy ï¿½dï¿½lï¿½ alan Stingï¿½in konserlerinde de ï¿½alan Kipperï¿½da var. Bu albï¿½mde kimlerle ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½tï¿½ï¿½ï¿½mï¿½za ve bu ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½manï¿½n nasï¿½l yï¿½rï¿½tï¿½ldï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ne dair rï¿½portajlarï¿½ bence gï¿½rmelisiniz. Akademik kariyerin ne iï¿½e yaradï¿½ï¿½ï¿½nï¿½ ancak bu iï¿½lerde anlayabiliyorsunuz. Tï¿½m bu ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½malar sï¿½rerken yï¿½ksek lisans tezimi ï¿½Tï¿½rk pop mï¿½ziï¿½inde Tï¿½rk Musï¿½kï¿½si etkileriï¿½ baï¿½lï¿½klï¿½ konu ile tamamladï¿½m ve bu sï¿½rede mï¿½zik sektï¿½rï¿½nde yayï¿½nlanmï¿½ï¿½ ï¿½ok sayï¿½da albï¿½mï¿½ dinleyerek ï¿½incelemeï¿½ fï¿½rsatï¿½ buldum. Bu konuda esprili olarak sadece ï¿½Kï¿½rdï¿½ makamï¿½na dikkat diyeceï¿½im. 2002 yï¿½lï¿½nda Mï¿½jdat Gezen'in Efendy Show Theatre iï¿½in hazï¿½rladï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ "Kabare Tri Peypï¿½rs" da Mï¿½jdat Gezen, Nï¿½khet Duru, Ayï¿½en Gruda, ï¿½lhan Daner, Ateï¿½bï¿½ceï¿½i Ercan ve gibi birï¿½ok usta sanatï¿½ï¿½yla sahne alma ï¿½erefine nail oldum. 2004 yï¿½lï¿½nda yayï¿½nlanmï¿½ï¿½ ï¿½Yumuï¿½akï¿½alar ve Diplomasiï¿½ isimli bir kitabï¿½m var. ï¿½ki sene ï¿½nce ise Yeniï¿½aï¿½ gazetesinde kï¿½ï¿½e yazï¿½larï¿½ yazdï¿½m ve bunlardan aldï¿½ï¿½ï¿½m olumlu tepkilerden dolayï¿½ ï¿½ok mutlu oldum. ï¿½ki kez evlendim ve boï¿½andï¿½m. ï¿½kinci evliliï¿½im Buket Saygï¿½ ile oldu, aï¿½ï¿½k olarak evlendim ve hamdolsun, halime ï¿½ï¿½kï¿½rler olsun ki bu evlilikten Atilla Ata isimli ï¿½imdilerde dokuz yaï¿½ï¿½nda olan ama on yaï¿½ï¿½nda demezsem bana kï¿½zan bir evladï¿½m var. Beï¿½ seneyi bulan bir dï¿½ï¿½ï¿½nme sï¿½reci sonrasï¿½ ï¿½popï¿½uï¿½ lafï¿½ndan sï¿½kï¿½ldï¿½m ve bunu bir ï¿½sendromï¿½ gibi gï¿½rmeye baï¿½ladï¿½m. Bu beï¿½ senelik uzun zaman iï¿½erisinde bu sï¿½zcï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ aï¿½abilmek iï¿½in ne yapacaï¿½ï¿½mï¿½ dï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ndï¿½kten sonra bunun ancak ï¿½retim ile olabileceï¿½ini iyice fark ettim. O zamanda genï¿½ken ï¿½ok dalga geï¿½tiï¿½imiz atasï¿½zlerinin ne kadar deï¿½erli olduï¿½unu fark edip ï¿½nce edebimi geliï¿½tirmeyi ve ï¿½ï¿½yinesi iï¿½tir kiï¿½inin, lafa bakï¿½lmazï¿½ sï¿½zï¿½ ï¿½zerine tefekkï¿½r etmenin boï¿½ konuï¿½maktan ï¿½ok daha iyi olacaï¿½ï¿½nï¿½ kalbime yazdï¿½m.. Bu uzun sï¿½reci ï¿½arkï¿½lar ï¿½reterek, bir mï¿½zikal ve bir de kitap yazarak deï¿½erlendirdim. Bunlardan ï¿½ï¿½izoidï¿½ isimli mï¿½zikal ile geï¿½en sene iki gala ile sahne aldï¿½m ve bu projeyi daha da geliï¿½tirmek istiyorum. Aynï¿½ zamanda ï¿½Sanatï¿½ï¿½nï¿½n adli gï¿½nlï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ isimli bir kitap ï¿½zerinde de ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½ï¿½yorum. Zamanï¿½ Yï¿½ce Allah tarafï¿½ndan bana verilmiï¿½ bir borï¿½, bir sermaye olarak gï¿½rï¿½yorum. Bu sermayeyi boï¿½a zaman geï¿½irerek harcamak istemediï¿½imden zamanï¿½ iyi iï¿½lere ï¿½evirmeyi halka ve yine bir anlamda da Hakkï¿½a hizmet olarak deï¿½erlendiriyorum
