Folk Dance of Turkish Black Sea Coast

Jump to last reply

The following is an amateur recording of the performance of the winning high school group from Ankara at the Black Sea Folk Dance competition.

The dance is called "Horon".

The main instrument is called "Kemence" (pronounced "caemaenchae" a small and very simple stringed indtrument with few strings played like a violin. (In fact, this is an interesting memento to take back with you)

Unfortunately the music of the region is rather repetitious, also limited because of the abilities of the kemence, but the teachers and the kids have done wonders.

Those of you who are spending a few nights at Antalya area, you may consider watching an "Anatolian Fire" show at the aspendos Antique Theatre, a professional and magical show combining modern dance with Turkish folk dances and different types of music.

This is their version of "Horon" :
