  1. a lovely piece. the rhythm is called Curcuna (pronounced Dzhurdzhuna) in Turkish and is considered a single unit in 10, divided 3+2+2+3. You are right about its being around the area – the Armenians love it (one musician who didn’t know the tune I asked for, Shiro Yerk, said “oh, you just want a 10/8 bar…”). Thanks for the youTubes – this goes into my file.
