If you ever visit Istanbul, you should go to Taksim/Beyoğlu. There's this avenue called "İstiklâl" which is full of people all the time. This street is a common tourist attraction point and evidently you hear different languages being spoken by people passing by. There are various shops and vendors on each side, street musicians are also a common sight.

I walked the street all the way down while holding the 120 degree wide X&Y stereo micprohone on one hand and Tascam recorder on the other. The gain was kept at low so hardly any handling noise is audible, partly thanks to Rycote's Invision INV-7.

I've just listened to this over and over when I came back after recording session. I love the parts when random melodies slowly fade in, make you smile and then disappear into the crowd noise...

If you like it, please feel free to rate and comment. Oh you can also show your appreciation by buying me a coffee here buymeacoff.ee/slIi3wE :)
