MAKING MUSIC WITH THREE - STRINGED BAGLAMA

 

Even though he defines himself as a ‘humble village musician’, the UNESCO has already  hosen him as a “Living Human Treasure”. Hayri DEV who lives in the Gökçeyaka Village of Çameli District in Denizli has transformed the interesting music that the women of the western Taurus mountains make in order to encourage their men. He started playing the 3-stringed instrument which he always carries around with himself and his whistle pipe which has been always in his inner pocket since he fell in love with the daughter of his neighbour while being a shepherd in the mountains at the age of 13. Since that day, he performs the music he learned from his grandfather and father to bring the goats to the plains and to chat amiably with his fellow shepherd friends. This is the story of the interesting life of Hayri DEV who has been chosen “Living Human Treasure” by UNESCO. His music was dicovered by the musicologist Jerome Cler fromthe University of Sorbonne in 1992.
