1356123675 A General Outlook On The Components Led To The Formation Of Turkish Culture

Literally, culture which is perceived as a body of themes related to the way of life
of a society is the product of a historical process which is passed down from generation to
generation. This product perceived as the most important representation element of social
identity is a way of thinking as well. One of the fields that are shaped by this way of thinking
is music. Music,in which sense,thought,sound,aesthetic and cultural elements are included, is
one of the means which state cultural exchange and diversity explicitly. Culture which takes its
form according to continent, country, region, city, village,etc…has impressed the music with
this aspect. In other words, the fields which have different living mentality have different music
genres. Music which is a way of expressing joy,sadness,shout and rebellion intimately in a
society is called as “Music Culture” under the title of culture and also called as “Turkish Music
Culture”under the title of Turkish cultue. Turkish music culture which dates back to for five
thousand years and which expresses the development process has many changes from mid
East to present. Different civilisation mentalities have great effects on the formation of these
cycles. When it is thought as music genres, Turkish music culture which includes wide ranges
of music genres such as traditional music and popular music and etc…can be examined under
many head titles. Here, this study is done with the aim of evaluating and putting the factors
that have great effects on the change and the formation of Turkish music culture under the
scope. Literature search is thouhght to help considerably to the embodiment of this study.
