SOAS Concert Series: Huseyin Kaplan & Dursun Can Cakin

The Mysticism of Anatolian & Alevi Folk Music

The bağlama or saz (a plucked folk lute) is considered to be an emblem of Anatolian culture. The name comes from the Turkish «bağlamak», “to tie”, referring to the frets tied to the neck of the instrument. Alevism is a belief system found mainly in Anatolia, parts of the Balkans and Central Asia. Alevi religious services, known as cem, include spiritual exercises incorporating elements of deyiş (oral statements) and semah (ritual dance). Both are accompanied by sung mystical poetry and the bağlama. In this concert, Huseyin Kaplan and Dursun Can Cakin will be joined by an ensemble featuring Cem Tuncer (bass), Erdal Unsalan (bağlama /saz), Gizem Altinordu (percussion), and Serkan Cakmak (kaval flute) as they perform traditional music from Anatolian and Alevi deyiş folk music.
