from Türkülerle Türkiye - 28 Giresun (Ulus Müzik 2002) —Giresun, Rize, and Trabzon are all areas on the Black Sea coast of Turkey, at the Eastern end. It is occupied a several language groups and was also home traditionally of a very large Greek population, most of it moved in the 1920's to northern Greece.
Emin Yağcı “İki Ayak Horonu (Oyna Enişte Oyna)”

İsmail Türüt “Vona (Ordu'nun Iskları)”
from Piryoz (Ulus Müzik 2002) —this singer sings in both Lazuri and Turkish. He is known for his engaging, if not totally traditional arrangements, and has several CDs out

Fuat Saka “Çilveloy”
from Lazutlar (Kalan www.kalan.com 1997) —a totally non-traditional arrangement of a very traditional song throughout all of northeastern Turkey. All of Fuat Saka's recordings are good, and many of his arrangements are very imaginative, but the original dance can always be done to them
Erol Alkan “Potbori: Nani Nani/Kobak/Atabari/Cilveloy”
from Karçhal Ezgileri (Baysah Müzik) —at the end of this medley of tunes you will hear the Turkish Georgian version of Cilveloy, the song Fuat Saka did earlier in the show
