About the event

Musicians! Bring your instruments & voice! Listeners, music lovers, dancers ... Come join us! And... Get the chance to perform on stage with a Turkish Saz Master at the end of the workshop on Jan 29th at Ashkenaz.

Sendogan Hoca will introduce Turkish Makams and Folk and Ashik Music and we will explore on a repertoire.

Ashik Ensemble will be there during the workshop playing oud, ney, tambur and bendir.

"The first rule of being an ‘Aşık’ (bard) is to be in Love! With a lover, or a flower, humankind, nature and the creator. All your words and descriptions should be made with Love. The second rule is to play the Lute (or a stringed instrument). Anatolian music is a maqam music that utilizes microtones that are not present in the Western music system. And this maqam structure is varied according to different areas. One must possess a great knowledge of the playing styles and maqams of the area they are representing. Lastly, and this is the vital point, one has to possess a substantial knowledge of literature."

Please register here to keep your space at the workshop. 

Drop-ins to individual workshops are accepted.
