Turkish folk music
Most songs recount
stories of real life events
and Turkish folklore, or have
developed through song
contests between troubadour
poets. Corresponding to their
origins, folk songs are usually
played at weddings, funerals
and special festivals.
Turkish folk music
Folk instruments range from string
groups as bağlama, bow instruments
such as the kemençe (a type of stave
fiddle), and percussion and
wind, including the zurna, ney and davul.
Regional variations place importance on
different instruments, e.g.
the darbuka in Rumeli and
the kemençe around the Eastern Black
Sea region. The folklore of Turkey is
extremely diverse. Nevertheless, Turkish
folk music is dominantly marked by a
single musical instrument
called saz or bağlama, a type of long-
necked lute. Traditionally, saz is played
solely by traveling musicians known
as ozan or religious Alevi troubadours
called aşık.
