The Aşık (Ashik) traditions
It is suggested that about a fifth of the Turkish population are Yörüks, whose folk music is performed by a type of travelling bard or ozan/shaman/baksı called aşık, who travels with the saz or baglama,cura an iconic image of Turkish folk music. These songs are about mystical revelations, invocations to traditional saints and whom they hold in high esteem. In Turkish aşık literally means 'in love'. And there is a amazing connection in Greece with Ashik -Ασίκης (Asikis). Are you ready to discover it with us? We all in the same boat!
