Nim Sofyan is the term for 2/4 time in Anatolian music. Nim Sofyan, the band comes from Balkan metropolis, Vienna. The quintet manages to combine lyrical elegance and unforgiving drive and with this mixture hits the nerve of time. Nim Sofyan mixes the music of the Balkans and Asia with elements of Mediterranean and Western European world music plus an occasional pinch of funk and jazz. The stable centre of this band is guitarist and lead vocalist Alp Bora from Ankara with his seductive purple oriental-soul-voice. The overwhelming success of the quintet with critics and audiences proves that the time was ripe for Nim Sofyan's elegant melodious but still fervent music.
