Chapter 6 zooms in on different contextual and musical aspects of the whole series of forty-six attended events, in order to apprehend some of the properties, commonalities, and differences of the performance of Turkish folk music in the motherland and the diaspora, in a systematic way. The following aspects structured the observation and guided the subsequent analysis: kind of event / use, occasion, set-up, financing, time, place, commissioners, listeners, performers, programme, repertoire, line-up, way of creation, performance quality, and performance style.
