  • Description

    In remote cities of Eastern Turkey, poet singers continue to perform ancient traditions, accompanied by the long necked lute. Here, four renowned poet musicians sing of love, of distance, of adventures, and of landscapes in a style that combines deep religiousity with tender poetic imagery. Recorded in eastern Turkey and extensively annotated in a 60-page booklet.
