Mor Ve Ötesi was established in January of 1995 by Kerem Kabadayi (drums), Harun Tekin (vocals/guitar), Derin Esmer (vocals/guitar) and Alper Tekin (bass) – four close high school friends – in Istanbul, Turkey. The band gained enormous popularity in Turkey, and describes 2008 as "a year of action and opportunities to take their already-brilliant career further to reach new territories and wider audiences."
Meanwhile, Turkish broadcaster TRT re-launched its Eurovision Song Contest website.
