Born in Dersim, Ahmet Aslan studied from 1993 to 1996 at the Conservatory of Istanbul Technical University. Since 1996, he has lived in Germany. In 2003, he released his first solo album with the title "Va u Waxt (Wind and Time)," followed in 2008 by his second album "Meleklerin Dansı (Dance of the Angels)." Between 2008 and 2012, he studied at the World Music Academy in Rotterdam, from which he graduated with a bachelor's degree. During his studies, he created an instrument by combining the classical guitar with the Bağlama (La-Tar / Guitar-Saz) using his own resources. After many graphical drawings, prototypes, and discussions with his teachers (Martin Greve, Kemal Dinç, Paco Peña) and other musicians (Carlo Domeniconi, Antonis Anissegos), he realized his experiments by building this instrument in collaboration with the instrument maker Süleyman Aslan (Dutar Saz Evi). With this instrument (La-Tar), he has performed several trials on his new album "Na Mükkemmel (Imperfect).
