Chapter: Case Study of a Song: 'Hüdayda'

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.39623


Chapter 7 further illustrates the traditional, academic, and popularized performance styles introduced in chapter 6, by juxtaposing different manifestations of popular dance song Hüdayda. The TRT version is compared to four concrete instances encountered during the fieldwork in Turkey, thereby analysing aspects such as tempo, intervallic structure, form, and style. As in the previous chapter, the performance styles are elucidated by transcriptions in music notation.
