Ilhan formed his first band, “Evrim Folk Dörtlüsü”, with his brother Ihsan in 1970, and recorded the first single record in 1971. In 1973 they changed their band’s name to “Evrim 5”, and recorded their second single with lyrics by Ümit Yasar Oguzcan, and Esmeray featured on lead vocal. With the success of this single, “Evrim 5” hit the charts on HEY Music Magazine’s Top 50 list for 16 consecutive weeks. Ilhan Irem later joined the group as a lead singer. Among his many other accomplishments, Ilhan received the TRT Best Composer Music Award in 1979, competing with 415 other composers.
