Maqam structures of the anatolian Ashiqs
One of the most interesting aspects of Anatolian folk music is the Ashiq (minstrel) tradition.

Those musicians interpret the term maqam more different than Ottoman-Turkish court musicians. In my paper I will focus the meaning of the maqam for the Anatolian Ashiqs.
