The album will be out on October 28th, 2016 in Europe. More release dates will be announced soon. Founded in 2007 by Berk Öner under the name Sidre as a one man band project. With the change of interests, subjects and melodies so did the name to Yaşru in 2009, which means ‘mystery, secret’ in old Turkic (Gokturk) language. Yaşru, is inspired by ancient Turkic culture and folklore, takes the life, beliefs, writings and epic stories of the people at that time. Songs are intensively lyrical and epic. In 2012 Yasru released its first promo album “Öd Tengri Yasar” through web to its listeners. With the success of promo album, Berk decided to add other members to the band for concert requests.
