Capturing the bond between both father and son, Tayfun pays homage to Fathers Day by releasing the visuals for his latest single ‘Lessons From My Baba’ via Link Up TV. Delivering an ode to his Father, Tayfun constructs a personal and honest reflection of how his father made him the man who he is today.
Embracing his roots, not only through the relationship between himself and his father, he goes back to his motherland Turkey to film the stunning scenic backdrop to the video. His culture and heritage play a poignant role in his music and both ‘Lessons From My Baba’ and his debut single ‘Figo’ are shining examples of that.
SLVNG MAJOR returns on the production as he infuses a piano-laced instrumental with a heavy beat that accommodates the rich sounds of the Saz guitar. ‘Lessons From My Baba’ acts as the foreground of where both western and eastern musical influences merge together and create a hybrid that plays on different cultural elements.
2017 has facilitated great growth for Tayfun, having dropped his debut ‘Figo’ two months ago it has cultivated over 150,000 views. ‘Lessons From My Baba’ delves into a more personal follow-up and demonstrates his strengths both as a songwriter and stylistically as a rapper.
“The song is about the lessons that I learnt from my father growing up. It’s about his Success, his regrets and his hopes for the family legacy.”
