Kemal Oksal embraces a variety of styles and genres (movie scoring, world music, pop, rock, jazz, and orchestral) and has taken part in several soundtracks, concerts, and recordings as a composer, conductor, arranger, and performer—often at the same time.

He holds a Master's degree in Music from the Istanbul University and studied Orchestral Conducting, Contemporary Writing & Production at Berklee College of Music where he worked closely with Louis Stewart, Francisco Noya, Greg Fritze, Simon Shaheen and had chance to attend Boston Pops rehearsals with Keith Lockhart.

Oksal is the Music Director & Conductor of Istanbul Pops Orchestra, Assistant Conductor & Arranger for Cinema Symphony Orchestra, former Assistant Conductor of the Berklee Contemporary Symphony Orchestra and Founder/Band Leader for the Boston Balkan Collective.

With the “Istanbul Pops Orchestra” he recorded the Bill Conti’s famous tune called “Gonna Fly Now” from the “Rocky” movie. He chose a unique arrangement for this recording and invited the well-known clarinet virtuoso and Julliard alumni Ismail LUMANOVSKI as a guest soloist. 

 

His debut Ep “Musala” will be released December 2019 from his own record label Mulm.
