Description

Chapter 8 reveals the functions of Turkish folk music (performances) in Turkey and Ghent, as experienced and worded by performers, listeners, and commissioners. Additionally, an outlook on the genre’s status and value as perceived and articulated by the informants is provided. The identified musical functions cluster into a personal, social, and cultural field – with the intersections personal-social and social-cultural –, complemented by a philosophical-spiritual, and ritual field, the latter combining aspects from all other fields.
