“Frida’s Sonnet,” composed by Ayhan Sahin (vocal by Karine Hannah)

 

Formerly a civil engineer in his native Turkey, composer-producer Ayhan Sahin staged four full-length musicals there with an amateur theatrical group—includingSwedish Style, which grew out of Sahin’s admiration for pop supergroup ABBA. The production ultimately led to a meeting between Sahin and ABBA founders Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. Today he has his own indie label in New York and is working with the likes of Olivia Newton-John, Phoebe Snow, Sandra Bernhard, and American Idol finalists.
