01.11. Nihan Devecioğlu: Die Liebenden, 8 p.m.
The Âşıklar (“the lovers”), traveling poets in Turkish folk culture, accompanied by Matti Weber on the long-necked lute saz, sing poems about love, social and political experiences. Mostly male dominated, they form a close bond with the people whose lives they sing about. Soprano Nihan Devecioğlu creates her own song recital in which she narrates the lives of four first-generation “guest workers” who traveled from Turkey to Germany in the 1960s and 1970s as a female Âşık.
