Mehmet Ruhi Su (1912 September 20, 1985) was a Turkish bass baritone opera and folk singer and saz virtuoso. Ruhi Su was born 1912 in Van, Turkey, child of a simple official father and houswife mother. He later expressed his situation: "He is one of the children desolated by the World War I." After he lost his parents in very early age, he was taken from Van to Adana given to a poor family without child. He started playing violin at the age of ten. In 1936 he graduated from the Teacher''s School of Music and in 1942 from the Opera Department of State Conservatory in Ankara. The following ten years, he performed at the State Opera in Ankara as a celebrated bass baritone, appearing in operas such as Madame Butterfly, Fidelio, Tosca and Rigoletto. During his contemporary music education, he also studied Turkish folk music and consequently made regular radio programs, playing saz and singing folk songs, while he worked at the opera.
