Grup Gündoğarken (literally "Group While Sunrises") was a Turkish popular music group.

The group was founded by İlhan Şeşen in 1983. Other members of the group were Gökhan Şeşen and Burhan Şeşen, both of which are his nephews.[1] Their early performances were mostly incidental music. They collaboreted with Levent Kırca and Ferhan Şensoy for the stage. They also played the generic tune for the TV program "Olacak o Kadar", a successful commedy series.[2] Beginning by 1986, they gave a series of concerts at home and aboard. In 1988, they participated in the Turkish under-contest for the Eurovision song contest by their song "Resimler Resimler", but they couldn't win the contest. Probably their most notable hit was " Ankara'dan Abim Geldi " of 1992. After 1994, the group disbanded. But they still play in some concerts.[2]
