The music band Kior Topal was formed by reviving an old band of Greek musicians of Cappadocia, who carried with them, to their new homeland, their great and significant music tradition.
The tunes and the songs performed are the result of an experiential relationship and record keeping. Their music comes from the plateaux and the underground cities of Cappadocia, the historical cities of western Pontus and the refugee villages of northern Greece.
In the summer of 2019 Kior Topal released their first album, “Cappadocian Songs and Tunes” with 16 of the most popular songs of Cappadocia. By the end of 2020, they will have released their second album with music based solely on record keeping of first generation refugees from Karvali (Gelveri), Cappadocia, the homeland of Kior Topal.
