The Voice of Turkey, 2016

The musicians “Gökhan & Hakan”, competitors ” Emre Sertkaya, AlpArslan, Umut Barış”

One song is “Beni Hor Görme Gardaşım” by Aşık Veysel, (Âşık Veysel Şatıroğlu (October 25, 1894 – March 21, 1973), commonly known simply as Âşık Veysel, was a Turkish minstrel and highly regarded poet of the Turkish folk literature. He was born in the Sivrialan village of the Şarkışla district, Sivas Province. He was an ashik, poet, songwriter, and a bağlama virtuoso, the prominent representative of the Anatolian ashik tradition in the 20th century. He was blind for most of his lifetime. His songs are usually sad tunes, often dealing with the inevitability of death. However, Veysel used a wide range of themes for his lyrics; based on morals, values, and constant questioning on issues such as love, care, beliefs, and how he “saw” the world as a blind man.)

The other one is “Ötme Bülbül” by Hasan Eylen, Muzaffer Sarısözen
