"Honoring Oruç Güvenç's contributions to Turkish classical music"
One of the most influential figures in Turkish music, Oruç Güvenç, passed away last week. To commemorate this legend, we looked back on his success and contributions to the Turkic world
The repertories, musical performance style and types, dances, costumes and decorations as well as the social, cultural and pedagogical sources of Turkish music, spanning back 6,000 years, comprise the main focus of research and activities conducted by Tümata.
Sema, you may be familiar with as the dance-like practice of the Whirling Dervishes ergotherapy, the use of physical activity and exercise as treatment, the use of Turkish tonalities, referred to as makams and the ancient therapy dance referred to as Baksi, which stems from the Altai mountain range region, are some of their main activities as well as producing and developing instruments, and operating the instrument museum, with an archive of over three hundred musical instruments.
The world loses a legend
Last Tuesday, July 4, Oruç Güvenç passed away due to heart failure following an operation. After his passing, Turkey's Minister of Culture and Tourism Nabi Avci released the following statement of condolences: "With the meticulousness of an academic and the sensitivity of an artist, Rahmi Oruç Güvenç built a bridge between yesterday to today and has been a great service to humanity and our society. Providing a contribution to science with the traditional aspects of Turkish music, Prof. Dr. Rahmi Oruç Güvenç, also played an influential role in deepening the bonds of future generations with their roots. Playing an influential role in both areas of theory and practice of international research on music therapy and ethnomusicology, Güvenç, has signed on to a number of significant firsts both nationally and abroad."
Speaking to Emre Başaran from Tümata, I asked what this legendary figure responsible for introducing makams and classic Turkish musical traditions to so many people from all over the world, was doing in his final days, to which he said, "Recently, Oruç Güvenç was as always extremely active. He was teaching at Üsküdar University and was holding regular seminars, courses and concerts in Turkey, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Spain. In addition he was also holding and taking part in events held in varying geographical regions such as in India, America and New Zealand. In addition, he was also on the 64th day of the continuous sema being conducted for 114 days and 114 nights in Turkey."
Held annually, one of Tümata's most popular activities is currently ongoing and is the "114 Days and 114 Nights Sema" program, which started on May 1 and will conclude until Aug. 23 and is taking place at the Rasim Mutlu Cultural Center in Yalova. People from all over world come out to take part in the ongoing continuous sema for as many days as they like, a unique opportunity not missed by many whom Oruç Güvenç has personally introduced to this style of music and healing tradition, touching many with knowledge and interest.
I asked Emre is this summer's sema program will continue, and he assured me that "Yes," adding "It is everyone's shared opinion is that the sema should be successfully completed. With God's permission," he said, "We want to finalize it the way Oruç Hoca had planned."
"Komm aus dem Meer wie eine Regenwolke - reise!
denn ohne Reise wirst du nie zur Perle."
