Güler Işık “Saza Niye Gelmedin”
from Şey Yani (Yapım Müzik) —a real tear-jerker about a woman who waited for her lover, but though he promises, he never shows up. The song is in 10/8 divided 3+2+2+3, a common rhythm in Armenia and northeast Turkey.
Selahattin Alpay “Malatya”
from (No title) (RAKS) —This is from a poorly annotated tape purchased in a bazaar in Turkey; it remains my favorite fersion of this classic song, which is also known in Armenia as the tune for "Sepastia Bar"
Mustafa Kandirali & Ensemble “Mastika”
from Caz Roman (World Network 1992) —a song about Mastika ( a kind of hard liquor) and smoking (note the coughs in the second half of the piece) - an instumental version of a famous song here rendered by Roma musicians
Brenna MacCrimmon “Ahmed'in Saclari Kinali”
from Karşılama (Green Goat Music 1998) —So far all the pieces from Trakia have been in fast or slow 9/8. This is the Canadian singer Brenna MacCrimmon with another roma band from Kesan in Trakiya led by Selim Sesler
