"An account of fieldwork researching the zeibekiko in Turkey.”   

by Ali Fuat Aydin

 

SUMMARY: In Turkey, the term “zeybek” is used to describe a historical and cultural identity. Their music and dances are also termed “zeybek”. In this paper the main characteristics (the makams, the rhythms, the instruments, the lyrics, etc.) of “zeybek” melodies and dances in the result of fieldwork research will be introduced. A brief information about historical background on the fieldwork research of  zeybek” melodies will be given and some audio and video samples (if possible) will be presented.

 

CV: Born in 1973 in Aydin-Karpuzlu-Ektirli. Graduated from Bornova Anatolian High School in Izmir (1991), and Middle East Technical University (METU), Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department in Ankara (1998).

 

While studying at METU he gave courses on baglama, as well as being president of the executive council of METU Turkish Folklore Club, one of the university's cultural clubs (1994-6); he also conducted the club's Turkish Folk Music Choir (1995). After his graduation he continued to lecture on baglama during his military service. Some years later he returned to conducting the choir, travelling from Izmir to Ankara at weekends over a period of two years (2002-3).

 

He has made a significant contribution to the repertoire of Turkish Folk Music with his collecting activities in several regions, especially Aydin, Mugla and Izmir. He has mainly worked on “slow zeybeks” and the main element of his collections is the “kaba zurna” culture in Aydin-Germencik and Mugla-Milas.
