FETHİYE CULTURE, LOCAL PRODUCTS AND DISHES



Folklore

Folklore

The folkloric features of the Teke Peninsula are quite interesting due to its special culture. Folk dances, folk music (the greatest master of the 3-string instrument, Ramazan Güngör, is a native of Fethiye), folkloric tales (Cahit Beğenç who won the first short-story award of the Turkish Language Institution in 1942 is also a native of Fethiye), and especially the migration to the plateaus and the social life of Nomadic culture set this area apart from other Mediterranean and Aegean regions. The performances of theatre-in-the-round displayed at Seki-Temel - Ceylan villages are typical examples. The master of the local music and folk dances, Koçek Mustafa (COŞKUN) is always remembered with respect.

 

Samples of nomadic culture and folkloric-ethnographical pieces are exhibited at the Museum of Nomadic Culture at Yanıklar and the Nomadic Tent set up at the Çalış Beach.
