What did music tell us when we were children?

The adventures we sailed off to, dreaming... The dream of a new world at peace...

The lullabies our mothers sang to us, the stories they told. For us, it is the search for ways to hand down this same tradition generation to generation.


We wanted the healing power of music to accompany our dreams, where our imagination knows no bounds. With our new album IMAGINE, we are sailing towards the dreams of our childhood. 


We wanted our lullabies and stories to accompany the children in that special, almost ritual-like moment before they fall asleep. It was a pleasure for us to work on these pieces that you can also comfortably perform, instead of just listening and reading.


Aside from the 11 lullabies that we arranged,  the last piece in the album, “Dandini Dandini Dastana” is an unforgettable lullaby that our mothers and grandmothers used to sing to us, to wish us off into a peaceful sleep. To be able to share this legacy with you through a different interpretation is very meaningful for us.


The composition process of this album took place in Stuttgart and Eskişehir, while the recording was done in Istanbul. The cover and all of the illustrations that carry us imaginatively into different worlds are by the Brooklyn-based illustrator Kristiana Parn. 

IMAGINE opens a door into a world where children will continue dreaming with the touching beauty of music itself. 

December (Dandini)

Composers Selin Şekeranber & Yudum Çetiner


Saflığın sembolü olarak hayata geliyoruz, yaşıyoruz, olgunlaşıyoruz, tecrübe ediyoruz, özlüyoruz ve bütün bunlar olurken de bizim kontrolümüzde olmayan sonradan fark ettiğimiz dinamikleri gözlemliyoruz.

Her anlamda düşüncelerimizin ve bedenimizin özgürlüğü için mücadele veriyor, özgürlük kavramın anlamını daha da net kazanabilmesi için ifade gücümüzü sanattan alıyoruz.

İşte bu yüzden,belirli biçimlerde var olmaya itildiğimiz sıradanlaşmış hayat döngüsünden çıkıp daha uzağa bakabilmek, hayatlarımızda fark yaratabilmek için zincirlerimizi kırmanın tam zamanı olduğunu düşünüyor ve kutunun dışına bakmanın heyecanını sizinle paylaşmak istiyoruz.

4 Night for four hands Op.68


We have begun our journey as two independent women from Turkey that is the bridge between Europe and Asia. Now, we continue this journey much stronger and more vigorous due to our passion to music as an art form and its production. Our hands are our only external organs, which we mostly use to express our thoughts and emotions. They also make us both unique and interconnected as they carry our most peculiar and most common feature, i.e. our fingerprints. 


We are going through tumultuous times in human history nowadays. Therefore, this is the exact right time for us all to unite by holding ‘hand-in-hand’ and empower each other. On this note, we believe that sharing our music with you all can help overcome these global challenges.

We have organised concerts in nearly all of the countries, stories of which we have told in our album. Appreciating our differences positively in each and every of those countries made all of us more colourful in our souls. Along the way, music has been the instrument to gather us altogether. 

Now, we move forward in our artistic journey whilst combining our strengths. In doing so, we have organised concerts both inside and outside Turkey with social responsibility. For instance, we have, and still do, devoted some of our concerts for the initiatives on young girls’ participation into education. We represent the power of women of the world through our music and emphasise in our concerts that the participation to education and opportunity for personal development are not good fortune for a few but a right for all women. Now is the time to take action for girls and young women who are the bright minds of the future and for women who will be raising them… The matter is to support and help, hence it is time to not be A HAND, but be in HAND-IN-HAND.

Dominated by Turkish composers and our own arrangements, “Essence of Piano Duo" is an album, in which we highlight our own mosaic and colors. In this extraordinary work, consisting of 10 different piece and composers, we express our own identity freely and we want to highlight the beauties arising from the differences of Eastern and Western music and culture.
