Ferdi Tayfur or born as Ferdi Tayfur Turanbayburt (born 15 November 1945, Adana), Turkish vocalist, composer, songwriter and film actor. The artist, who won a total of nine Golden Record Awards, is famous for his own songs that have also appeared in motion pictures. Having made more than 30 albums and more than 30 films in 1982, he founded Ferdifon Plakçılık in 2009 and entered the construction sector in XNUMX.


The artist, who was born in Adana, named the dubbing artist Ferdi Tayfur's admirer father Cumali Bey, and Cumali Bey, who was fond of his son's education, was murdered at the pavilion, and the artist lived a poor and tragic life, that his mother got married after the death of his father. He said that he wanted but could not do it because of possibilities. The artist, who was an apprentice in the candy store that his stepfather found in his childhood, said that he learned to read in business life. Later, Tayfur, who contributed to the livelihood of his family by working on the farm, sings at weddings in the same years, sees Adana Radio's music contest advertisement in the local newspaper and participates in the contest. However, he fails to win the first place and comes second, against the obstacles of his stepfather, he comes to Istanbul, finds a job at the Lunapark Casino and starts playing for Nurten İnnap. Later, he fills his first record named Leyla and earns 500 lira from this record.

Ferdi Tayfur made a two-record deal with Seda Plak in 1968, but did not receive the expected attention. Subsequently, he returned to Adana and took over the work in the farm, on the other hand, he continued his music studies and after three years, his plaque titled Huzurum Not Left is published. In 1973, he made a breakthrough with the 45-piece called Wild Flowers, which he made for Görsev Plak. Again in 1974, he made his name with the 45 'Tell Me the Truths. In 1975, he transferred to Elenor Plak. He first made a name for himself with the song called Drop You Gurbeti and then Çeşme.

Music career

Tayfur's first record, who married Zeliha Hanım in a modest ceremony in 1974, during the years he progressed in his music career by composing, made a good sale, but due to financial difficulties, two songs composed by the artist, Atilla Alpsakarya, were sold to Gülden Karaböcek. The artist, whose records were released one after the other, caught his real breakthrough with the song “Çeşme”, and in 1977 his first motion picture starring Necla Nazır with the same name was released. 12 million people watched the movie.

He gave concerts as well as tapes. 1993 people attended the concert he gave in Gülhane Park in 200.000.
