Nostalgia: What is it anyway? And: May it be shared?

No worries. I am not going to get into any definitions or discussions on or questions about the concept of “nostalgia” or delve into the dissection of any other notion today.

Every year during my month of birth, December I tend to become quite nostalgic for Sinop. The extent to which I miss that spectacular world region in Turkey increases with dramatic leaps in these thirty-one days. To the point that  I pay several desirous visits to that small peninsular town. Forcibly, only in my mind…Do you think you can now allow the relentlessly enticing aroma of the Turkish coffee I have prepared for your imagination’s sake leave my kitchen to travel all the way to you? Can you then make yourselves at home and enjoy your warming drink one sip at a time, while we all have our eyes on the two reasonably short video shows? Enjoy your “me”-time!

“Torul Hartaması” (by FUAT SAKA) is the name of the musical piece to which KUZEYİN UŞAKLARI HALKOYUNLARI TOPLULUĞU in the video is performing for a folkloric dance competition in Turkey. Art Director: DR. ERDİNÇ ÖZTEN; Music Arrangement and Soloist: İHSAN EŞ; Music and Dance Choreography: ÖZEL YAPIM GRUP.
