|| A Brief Information About The
Turkish Folk Music
As in most
societies we come across Turkish folk music dealing with daily life
and Turkish classical music, the music of the courts. A folk song
usually deals with things of daily life, be it a work song, a
story-telling ballad, a love song, or a dance song.
The subject of
the song usually reflects the way people live and work, the language
they speak, the instruments they play.
Folk songs called "türkü", reflects the events experienced by Turks.
Türkü changes with the changing times.
Folk songs always have
a story behind them. Sometimes it is a love story and sometimes it is the
expression of deep emotions even though modern and the latest technical
developments are used to convey the powerful feelings of a regional people
with traditions stretching back for centuries. You can feel the sorrow of
a mother asking about her son lost in the war, or a young newly wed couple
not wanting to leave each other alone for fear that something may happen
to one or the other. The regional mood also affects folk songs. For
example folk songs from the Black Sea are lively in general and express
the customs of the region. Songs about betrayal have an air of defiance
about them instead of sadness.
