Sezen Aksu was born in Denizli and spent much of her early years in Izmir, the romantic and nostalgic city on the Aegean coast of Turkey. She studied painting, music and theatre at school. While attending the Aegean University, she released her first musical composition with lyrics. This first song, 'Kaybolan Yillar' (Bygone Years), became a hit that touched thousands of people's hearts and marked the beginning of her professional career. Sezen Aksu is the first female Turkish artist who composes and performs her own music.
