Ipek Amber has performed alongside 30 other artists in an evening of concerts in Gazimagusa, Northern Cyprus.
The 2015 Turkvizyon participant from Northern Cyprus took to the stage at the Namik Kemal Square in the Northern Cypriot town on Gazimagusa. She spoke of her pleasure to take part in such an event and expressed her joy at the level of interest from the public in the concerts. The evening of concerts brought together residents from Famagusta and across the south-eastern coast of Northern Cyprus.
The concert was organised by the Famagusta Music Movement who are hoping that the event can become an annual fixture. The event is aimed at enabling young musicians to be discovered by the public.

Northern Cyprus was one of the original twenty-four countries and regions to participate in the Turkvizyon Song Contest in 2013. At the first contest in 2013 they finished 10th in the final represented by Grup Gommalar. Northern Cyprus returned to the contest in 2015, having been unable to compete in 2014 due to issues regarding international recognition of Northern Cyprus.
