These are my lullabyes. They have never been sung or written before. When I was burdened with heavy engineering jobs, I found myself writing these lullabyes on the dinner table in the living room. There, under the dim light, within the peace of mind that I belong in, surrounded by objects that I love, I wrote
these lyrics within a few hours. Actually this became the things that I miss. Maybe it was a desire to return to when everything were simpler, pure, fun, when everything and everyone were loved easily and unconditionally, nature and earth, air, water,
every bite of food in our mouths, the lukewarm taste of milk, the red berries, wolves, foxes, snakes...
I couldn’t sing to my children in my first language, because no one sung them to me. So I wrote these lullabyes because I wanted to be sung to, and I wish that I had sung to
my children with these lullabyes. When I was raising my children, I read a lot of Maria Montessori, and I knew how important repetition of repetition was when educating
children. I used the same method writing the lyrics. I wrote them within a night. The morning after, I contacted Jon Wygens. I booked my flight to London months before
and organisations were made. For one week, we worked in an absurd studio above an old metro station in which probably old station chiefs are living. When we got tired we hit the streets of London.
We were very happy while recording, we had fun. We imitated
the lamb voices in Tikani Nanni with our own voices.
We yawned a lot, we got sleepy.
I hope you’ll feel similar things as you listen, as you dive
into luminous dreams.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“Mircan Kaya is freed by her day job as an engineer to pursue her music with a singular vision. Her voice ranges from etheral to dutsy, through pain and joy, always true to some deep and wise river of sound that flows through her to our ears. INSULA may be the deepest yet.”
