On the occasion of International Women's Day on March 8, de Doelen welcomes legendary Turkish singer Selda Bağcan.  

Selda is a legendary singer and political activist. Her first singles, about political struggles and working class demands, sold more than 1 million copies.  
Selda's psychedelic interpretations of traditional Turkish folk music made her the lady of Anatolian Folk Rock music. She describes herself as the sour voice of the Turkish people. 

Her political views made Selda loose her passport and caused her to be jailed repeatedly in the 1970s and 1980s. With her voice she presents life, the suffering and rebellions in a completely different meaning. She continues to produce new albums and give concerts all over the world. 

She is listed in “The Last 100 Years' Best 100 Women Vocals” of Rolling Stone Magazine.
