Abstract

In 2006, Çavusoglu and Bojanov commissioned five virtuoso Roma musicians from the small border town of Keşan, Turkey, to perform several pieces from traditional repertoire. Keşan is the centre of a Roma (Gypsy) community and is in an area referred to by Çavusoglu as “the end points of the European idea”. The Romany population of the town was forced to settle in the region in the 1923 population exchange and is subsequently steeped in Greek, Turkish and Bulgarian musical traditions and history. Çavusoglu and Bojanov asked the musicians to choose an “ideal” location for a performance in or around Keşan where their music would resonate best. (from gallery website)
