Dancers from Muş

When I first collected a ticket (no e-tickets at that time) to Muş at my esteemed travel agent, Ahmet Kızıltepe, he was speaking to a Rotterdam colleague on the phone, and could not resist telling the colleague he would not believe what he was doing: writing a ticket to Muş, for the first time in his career. It was rather special at the time. I have since booked tickets to that destination three times more. So when I came across a group of dancers next to the muvakkithane (the what? The workroom of the müneccim or mosque astronomer) on their west side and the Hünkar Kasrı (the what? The Imperial Pavilion that was built in the middle of the 17th century right at the Golden Horn as part of the Yeni Camii) on their east I was pleasantly surprised to hear they were from Muş. They were dancing to celebrate the opening of an exhibition dedicated to photos from Muş. The dancing was fierce as always from those parts, and the accompanying drum and the zurna player made it impossible to stand still. One man in a blue suit with matching tie was amongst the most energetic, maybe he was the organizer or the major, I don’t have a clue. One woman had a child in some carrying arrangement that bopped up and down while she danced.
I give you lots of pictures, because they give such a nice impression. I also put this gallery at both the “Near the New Mosque” (Istanbul) and my Muş gallery.
