The Song of the Other/Public Space as a Learning Environment and Gypsy Musicians in Turkey
Ozer, Ulas
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v11 n4 p224-241 Nov 2013
This work focuses on both public musical practices of Gypsy musicians who live in the Thracian land lying within the northwest of Turkey, and musical learning that takes place here. I primarily highlight the historic dimensions of the relation between Gypsies and music and emphasized musicianship in the lives of Gypsies as a fundamental class tendency. I then present the relationship between learning and talent which is learnable in the public space. I discuss the determining role of public space in talent and learning by giving examples from the living practices of Gypsy musicians who live in the Thracian region of Turkey. Finally, I conclude my study with a general assessment.
