Related 2 thoughts on “Damat Halyı – a Turkish dance?” Add yours Damat Halyı (no dot over the i) has a tune identical to that of a Greek dance taught by Joe Graziosi at Balkan Camp a few years ago (even closer than the examples you gave). The dance itself is not that far from some other Turkish dances I have seen. Thracian and other non-central Anatolian dances can be quite varied. There is on YouTube one contributor who put up videos of a street dance in which Turkish men did many dances we think of as Slavic Macedonian, but with Turkish names (sometimes the same, sometimes in translation, e.g. “Crnogorka” becomes “Karadağ”). I am asking around about the bachelor’s dance. LikeLike Reply Thanks. John, I’ve corrected the spelling and await the results of your searches.
