Makam Duo was born out of the musical encounter between Mevlüt Akgüngör (ney/reedflute) and Robert Micin (oud). Together they play pieces from the vast repertoire of Turkish classical music and the mystical Sufi music such as taksims, peshrevs, ilahi’s and sazsemai’s in various makams. They performed in Belgium and abroad such as : Concierto de Tres Culturas (la Catedral de Almudena, Madrid), Cultuurmarkt (Antwerp), Fête de la Musique (Brussels), Foro Encuentro Interreligioso (Madrid), Life Iftar (GC De Kriekelaar, Schaarbeek), Interreligious Concert (Sint-Janbaptistkerk, Molenbeek and Filosofenfontein in Leuven), Rumi Night (Sint-Pietersabdij, Ghent), etc…


Mevlüt Akgüngör has been passionate about music since childhood. At a young age, he received his first musical instruction from his father in traditional and religious singing. He started his musical career with the saz (Turkish long neck lute), but soon his interest switched over to the Ney, a Turkish reed flute that is seen as a central instrument in both classical Turkish music and the more religious Sufi music. He followed various workshops and master classes with masters such as Ömer Erdoğdular, Derya Türkan, Christos Barbas and Ross Daly.

The great ney masters Niyazi Sayın, Sadreddin Özçimi and Ömer Erdoğdular are his main musical inspirations along with other greats of classical Turkish music such as Tanburi Cemil Bey, Necdet Yaşar, Ihsan Özgen, Bekir Sıdkı Sezgin and Kani Karaca.

Robert Micin has been playing ud for more than ten years. He studied with great musicians from the Arab world : Iraq, Morocco, Syria, Egypt, Palestine. Since 4 years, he devotes himself to Turkish classical music.
