Ebru Gündeş, the singer’s ex-wife Reza Zarrab Turk, before and after make-up
Ebru Gündeş sings the kind of desperately tragic Arabesque love songs that are the core of Turkish pop music. Her debut album, Tanrı Misafiri, was released in 1992. It proved to be a massive success, selling 1,250,000 copies nationwide. At this stage, she was regarded as a very sweet and innocent-looking girl, slim, dressed in white and with an attractive habit of raising one eyebrow. She was on billboards all over Istanbul. Her subsequent albums have been hugely successful.
