Burak Kaya (1970) was born in Ankara, Turkey. He began playing classical guitar at age of 12. He played both classical guitar music and jazz standards seperately for a long period of time. Although he took some guitar and harmony lessons, he's mostly self-taught.
Kaya had a strong influence of world music, latin jazz and Anatolian traditional musics in his style. Instead of using amplified guitars he prefers to play nylon string classical guitar which creates an natural acoustic sound. He plays mostly in small groups such as jazz trios including double bass and percussions or duo instrument projects. After playing in several groups, he established Çekirdek with his friends and recorded an album named 'Siste Yürümek' in 1992.
