MOĞOLLAR (Mongols) were an early Turkish rock band who are best known for being a pioneer of the 'Anatolian Pop' style of modern Turkish folk music. The band first formed in 1967 and released a series of singles with a shifting lineup (including at least two under the name MANCHOMONGOL) before recording their first full-length studio album 'Anadolu Pop' in 1971 (also known as 'Les Danses et Rythmes de la Turquie d'hier á Aujourd'hui').
The band would record several singles in the early seventies with the prolific Anatolian rock star Cem Karaca before disbanding around 1974. Members Cahit Berkay and Engin Yörükoğlu would record two additional albums under the MOĞOLLAR in the mid-seventies before beginning a 17 year hiatus.
The group reformed in 1993. The group is still active today. --- Bob Moore
