INSPIRING WOMEN: F & F Önder

I have to tell you about those two Turkish woman, who are outstanding in so many ways. Rarely I have seen such a combination of talent, female power, beauty and political awareness. They are twins and an extraordinary example of how modern and openminded the Turkish culture could be.

First of all, Ferhan and Ferzan Önder are one of the most talented young pianists of our times. When they enter the stage – dressed in floor-length gowns of white silk and wavy long hair – you feel reminded of a fashion event and their aura is immense. It is the maximum of modern feminity you can demonstrate. And with all that said, they sit down at their pianos and perform „Gezi Park I“, a piece composed by Fazil Say – the „enfant terrible“, on the occasion of the demonstrations at the same-named park.
