Born in 1939, in Istanbul, Okay Temiz was deeply involved in music from his early years. He got his first musical inspirations from her mother, Naciye Temiz, who had gone through classical Turkish music education.

While in Denmark and Sweden, he collaborated with some of the highly esteemed names of the jazz scene, such as Dexter Gordon, George Russell and Clark Teery.

Forming his Swedish Turkish Jazz group, Oriental Wind, in 1974, Okay Temiz surged further into multi-cultural music and reached a very appealing synthesis by blending European musical instruments like the violin, saxophone, flute, clarinet, bass and piano with Turkish instruments such as zurna, ney, kaval, ud, saz, gayda and sipsi. For a short while, his mother Naciye also joined the group and accompanied in some of the performances they gave in Sweden. Oriental Wind was originally made up of renown musicians like pianist Bobo Stensson, bassist Palle Danielson, saxophonist Lennart Aberg, and the master of ney and gayda, Hacı Tekbilek.

Okay Temiz still continues his mission of spreading multi-cultural music to wider audiences through the myriad of experiences he has gained over the years.
