As the main driving force behind 37Fern, Oğuz Büyükberber and Tobias Klein explore the palimpsest of Anatolian music in a modern jazz language. The virtuosity and versatility that Claron McFadden and Kristina Fuchs bring to the music enables the ensemble to blur the lines between strictly composed and improvised, contemporary and traditional. Freedom and imagination prompt the ambitions for this unique quartet. Originals and unique arrangements of folk music balance their repertoire. 37Fern had its debut at Basklarinet Festijn in 2018.
