In this issue

Dear Readers,
When I came to Istanbul to study in the Law Faculty of Istanbul University, I was amazed by the city as if millions of firstcomers do. It goes without saying that Istanbul is magnificent. However, for those who have limited financial sources, Istanbul is definitely not a happy place. Born in a southernmost area of Turkey -in Kilis- and being someone who came to Istanbul 53 years ago from my coming, he cleared the way for innumerable homies. Namely, Alaeddin Yavaşca founded the Kilis Foundation to provide food, dorm and social opportunities for all students from Kilis. Not only did he found this institution but he also was the honorary president of the foundation.
Being the last representative of a culture and era, he touched countless people’ lives and left a great legacy. The more we talk about him and his cultural heritage the better this culture enriches us.
We asked Derya Türkan’s help for the Alaeddin Yavaşca Project. As usually he does, he provided full support and we appreciate that. Intellectuals of music; Hasan Oral Şen, Osman Nuri Özpekel, Refik Hakan Talu and Derya Türkan all wrote about Alaeddin Yavaşca for our readers.
We wish you happy and musically cheerful days.
With warmest regards,
Mehmet Şerif Sağıroğlu

Makam Music Magazine Description:

PublisherMakam Muzik Anonim Sirketi




Dear Readers,

Maybe, the most beautiful piece of art is music. It is the melodic life that begins inside a mother’s womb, an integral part of human nature. Music is the most beautiful common ground that brings people together.

The geography we live in has hosted a deep-rooted music history. At the same time, the states and the heads of these states also made a considerable amount of contribution to music. Especially during the periods of the Ottoman Empire and the Republic, the interest of the statesmen in music and some of them being seriously engaged in music, have ensured that this branch of art is supported and brought into the present with a unique richness. Thus, numerous musicians have created invaluable works of art. It is our duty of loyalty to our history to preserve these works of art, tell their value and transfer them to future generations.

On each page you will going to read, we have strived to establish a bridge between the fascinating mystery of the musical history and the colors of our day built on this deep-rooted history. Our magazine is prepared in both Turkish and English in order to contribute to its goal of telling the universal characteristic of the Turkish music to the whole world.

This is the magazine of all who set their hearts on music.

Very truly yours.
