Duman is a Turkish rock band. The band successfully combines elements of traditional Turkish folk music with modern rock (in particular, grunge). Duman consists of Kaan TangÃ¶ze (vocals and rhytm guitar), Batuhan Mutlugil (lead guitar and backing vocals), and Ari Barokas (bass guitar and backing vocals).
== Band history = In the early 90s, Kaan had been living in Seattle. It was here that he wrote his first song for the Turkish rock band he would form in the future. At the time he performed with a band called Mad Madame. When he returned to Turkey, he met Batuhan Mutlugil and Ari Barokas who were performing with the Blue Blues Band. Together they formed the band â€śDumanâ€ť (a Turkish word for â€śsmokeâ€ť). After some searching for a drummer, they decided to work with out-of-band drummers. They worked with drummer Alen KonakoÄźlu for a long time until their last album.
