About Haluk Levent
Haluk Levent (born Haluk Acil; 26 November 1968) is a Turkish rock music singer who helped revive the long forgotten Anatolian rock genre in the 1990s.
After graduating from high school, he joined various university programs but he had to quit for economic reasons.
Levent moved to Istanbul in 1992. He worked at various bars in Ortaköy until he met with Yildiray Gürgen. He also worked with musicians like Serdar Öztop and Akın Eldes to increase the quality of his albums. In July 1993 he released his first album, Yollarda. Following his first album, his second album Bir Gece Vakti had sales approaching one million dollars in 1995. In September 1998, he released the album Yine Ayrılık. Following his military service, he released Kral Çıplak in February 2001, Bir Erkeğin Günlüğü in October 2002, Aç Pencereni in September 2004, and Annemin Türküleri in 2005.
In 2023, Levent was listed as one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World. He later said he would not attend the gala due to the criticism aimed at the Turkish government in the entry penned by Elif Shafak.
