Ayyuka was founded in the year 2001; they started to make their own music which was mostly improvisation and influenced by a lot of different styles. Sometime later the band came to its name naturally which, Ayyuka, one which has has two meanings: ''to the highest part of the sky" and "an idiom to tell that a secret has been revealed." After their university years, they moved to Istanbul and started to perform their music at some live venues. Since their self-titled debut album release, the band have performed in various music festivals and venues in a number of cities including Istanbul, Berlin, Lyon, Sao Paulo. They also have opened for artists like Jonathan Richman, R.E.M., and Sonic Youth. With very direct live performance energy apparent in their compositions, Ayyuka fuse characteristic elements from a variety of genres such as Anatolian rock, arabesque, surf rock, punk, spaghetti western, psychedelic rock, and funk. They released their second studio album Kiraci Odalari in October 2013. Sömestr is Ayyuka's third studio album, and the sound moves between psychedelic rock, afro rhythms, and plenty else besides. The album was made by editing improvised recording sessions that they recorded at their studio.
