Grup Yorum is a Turkish musical group that laces Turkish folk music with a left-wing political message. The group has been in existence since 1987, during which time its members have been arrested numerous times. The transition of the Turkish government from secularist to Islamist under Turkish Prime Minister Recip Erdogan has not made life any easier. During one demonstration in 2012, police purposely injured the eardrum of one singer, and broke the fingers of a violinist,with the intention of ending her musical career.

Following are some recent songs by Grup Yorum.

Here is an article about an arrest last year
