Turkish Dances

The geographical bridge between Europe and Asia, the folk dance and music of Turkey is an amalgam of Eastern and Western cultures. Their folk dances demonstrate various relationships found in the world around them (i.e. man and nature, man and woman, man and war, man and agriculture, etc.). The folk dances in this recording feature music that the Hora is typically danced to. Also called Sirtos or Syrtos, horas are a type of circle dance performed in western Turkey and in Greece.
