Turkey's selection took place on February 17th in Ankara.
The winning song was'Besinci Mevsim', song no 5, by Sebnem Paker.
The song has a violinist (like Nocturne!), as you can see!(if you have graphics), and is a slow ballad, rather more ethnic than last year's entry.
Lead singer in Turkey's 1996 entry.
