July 3, 2010 – Under a burning sun recently at NYC’s Central Park Summerstage, the top Turkish music stars turned out to celebrate the sounds of Istanbul and all of Anatolia, as thousands of fans, most of them Turkish, danced and sang along to their favorite songs. This day was labelled Istanbulive 2, a continuation of a new annual show at Central Park, and was marked by strong performances in the traditional, jazz, pop and rock veins.
