These musics of oral transmission are often relegated to the rank of practices of circumstantial interest and assimilated to the so-called traditional musics whereas the current scene is teeming with creativity, inventiveness and innovation as shown by the work of Tolgahan (Istanbul) and Sinan (Ankara).
