Mazhar-Fuat-Özkan (MFÖ) is a Turkish pop and rock band consisting of Mazhar Alanson, Fuat Güner and Özkan Uğur. While many of their songs poke fun at common Turkish types ("Ali Desidero", "Piskopatım") or satirise prejudice and corruption ("Deli Deli", "Rüşvet"), others are more spiritual in nature, showing their interest in Sufism ("Sufi", "Ateş-i Aşka").

The trio represented Turkey in the Eurovision Song Contest twice; in 1985 in Gothenburg, Sweden they came 14th with Didai Didai Dai, and in 1988 in Dublin, Ireland, performing the song Sufi to finish in 15th place.

Mahzar Alanson and Fuat Güner met in 1966 and joined Özkan Uğur in 1971 so MFÖ, as a music group, have been working together for 42 years.[1]
