Google is running a doodle for Barış Manço (sometimes spelled Baris Mancho) on its home page in Turkey today. The Turkish rock singer/songwriter, who also became a television producer, was born on this day in 1943.

While we don’t get a Knowledge Graph result from,where the doodle resides (the Knowledge Graph is not available at yet), Google does provide a Knowledge panel for Barış Manço in the U.S.
