Chapter 5, as well as the next three chapters, takes a closer look at the forty-six Turkish folk music events attended during the period of systematic fieldwork in Turkey and Ghent. This chapter starts with a brief overview of traditional occasions for folk music performance in Turkish society, based on literature and observations. Its second part consists of ethnographic, comparative description and analysis of a meaningful selection of the attended Turkish folk music events, either occurring in both the homeland and the diasporic context, or inherent to one of the contexts.
