Huznu Tuzsuz


Hüsnü Tuzsuz, Reyhan’s husband, is a highly respected local Romani violinist active in the restaurant and wedding circuit in Istanbul.  Hüsnü Tzsuz comes from a large family of musicians, and was trained by his father in the lineage of the great violinist Haydar Tatliyay. He teaches and performs in many Istanbul venues, and has been employed as a musician at Wonderland Café in Istanbul since 2010.  Hüsnü is recognized as a patient teacher able to convey the details of the makam modal system, ornaments and improvisation of Romani music to both local and international students.  Hüsnü has taught several US violinists who traveled specifically to Istanbul to study with him. This is his first time in America and a wonderful opportunity to learn from a true master of Turkish Romani violin.
