Episode Guide »
At the crossroads of the Bosphorous strait sits the sprawling metropolis of Istanbul, which has nurtured a variety of religions, cultures, languages, cuisines and, of course, music. In this episode, host Jacob Edgar checks out some of the sights and sounds found in "The City of the World's Desire." Turkish op star Nil Karaibrahimgil takes Jacob to her favorite trendy boutique, treats him to unplugged performances of some her best-known songs and provides an exclusive look at her private residence. He goes backstage with rock legend Sebnem Ferah, who shows off her shredding skills in front of 20,000 screaming fans. And famed clarinetist Husnu Senlendirici invites Jacob to picturesque Maiden's Island for a jam session by the sea. The episode concludes as Jacob toasts Istanbul's past and future with a hearty glass of raki, the famed Turkish liqueur, while serenaded by street musicians at a traditional Istanbul cafe.
