THE MUSICIANS OF KUMKAPI

The world of Romany musicians of Kumkapı, a historical location of Istanbul, is the subject of this film. With “Musicians of Kumkapı”, TRT enables us to witness the lives of Romanys in particular. “Musicians of Kumkapı” is trying to reflect the incredible rhythm between melodic worlds and struggles of the Romany musicians, who are recently a common subject for popular culture. While this documentary is capturing the interesting worlds of Romany musicians within Kumkapı, it also shows the change in the musical taste in connection with the social culture and how new generation musicians adapt themselves to this change.
