Mahkum bir kadın

(Selda Bağcan (December 14, 1948) is a Turkish folk singer-songwriter, guitarist, physical engineer and music producer. Her career as a professional musician started in 1971, during her final year at the university. 

Many of her songs carried strong social criticism and solidarity with the poor and the working class, which made her especially popular among the left-wing activists and sympathisers during the politically polarized 1970s. After the 1980 Turkish coup d'état, she was persecuted by the military rulers due to her political songs, and was imprisoned three times between 1981 and 1984).
