Kemankeş Café's Auditory Essence

Project type

Sound Design





Welcome to Kemankeş, an enclave of serenity and sophistication nestled within the vibrant heart of Karaköy, Istanbul. Here, every visit is an intimate sojourn, an escape into a world where culinary artistry meets the quintessence of auditory pleasure.

As you wander through the cobbled streets of Karaköy and step into Kemankeş, you're greeted by an ambience that's both enchanting and evocative. The air carries the aroma of artisan coffee and freshly baked delights, all sourced from the bountiful produce of local purveyors. But beyond the palate-pleasing menu lies Kemankeş's true allure—the mellifluous strains of jazz and fusion jazz that dance around the café, wrapping you in a tapestry of acoustic luxury.

Why Jazz and Fusion Jazz?

In the embrace of Kemankeş, jazz is not just background music; it's a character in the café's story. We chose jazz and its progressive sibling, fusion jazz, for their symbiotic relationship with Istanbul's own mosaic of cultures. Jazz, with its improvisational spirit, echoes the historical confluence of East and West that Karaköy represents. Fusion jazz, meanwhile, with its blend of various musical traditions, mirrors the contemporary dynamism of the district—a place always in conversation with its rich past and its kinetic present.

At Kemankeş, we believe that the essence of a café is not made up of its components alone, but in the alchemy they create together. It's here, in this confluence of flavors, aromas, and sounds, that memories are brewed. So we invite you to step in, let the world outside fade to a gentle hum, and lose yourself in the soulful embrace of our café. Because at Kemankeş, it's not just a meal—it's an immersive experience where great food and transcendent music become one.
