Ejder Gulec – Premiere Kanun maker passes

EjderTurkish kanun maker Ejder Güleç passed away a few days ago. He was an expert kanun maker that I never had the good fortune of meeting, but I am happy to say I own one of his instruments.

Ejder kanuns as we would refer to them (also cifte mizrab was another name) has been making exceptional kanuns for decades. For the longest time if you wanted the best – it was an Ejder kanun. He was a master craftsman.

I got my Ejder kanun through friend and fellow musician Ara Dinkjian who was selling it for another friend. As Ara told me, “this is an instrument you will always care for and pass on to your children”.

Rest in peace Ejder and know that your craftsmanship lives on throughout the world.
