Cigdem Carino

I started drumming in the university. As 4 young ladies we established the first female band of Bogazici University called Ain’t Blonde. It is also the second female rock band of Turkey after Volvox. I was having drum lessons from Cengiz Baysal who is currently a professional jazz drummer in the US. I was also an active member of the music club(BUMC). As Ain’t Blonde, we had many performances and concerts in various places in Turkey(Istanbul, Bursa, Ankara), in music clubs especially in Taksim and Ortakoy which were the popular music places during 90s.

After graduation, I entered professional life, got married and had children, therefore, my music life interrupted from time to time due to other activities but my passion and love for drumming always continued. Especially for the last 6 years I have been active again and continued my lessons with professional drummers Atilla Atalay, Cem Aksel and Emre Yildiz in different periods.

In 2015, we established the rock band FER and since then we have been performing in different music clubs and giving concerts until the pandemic. Besides FER, I performed with Prelude, SOS Band and Akbankli Band on project basis. My gear is Istanbul Agop cymbals, Yamaha Volkan Oktem Signature snare, Tama Starclassic Maple drums, Iron Cobra single pedal and Vic Firth drum sticks.

Despite my heavy professional career life in the corporate world, I have been actively continuing drumming due to my high ambition, passion and love for drumming. Thank you.
