Anatolian Rock – Phenomena of Hybridization


The term “Anatolian Rock” was invented by Turkish musicians in the late 1960s
as a brand to

promote their music. It is a very general term, used to describe music derived
from both traditional

folk music and pop-rock music in a wider sense. What is special about Anatolian
Rock is its capacity

of building hybrids, covering the whole range from nearly traditional Turkish
music, you will not

locate elsewhere than Turkey, to a sort of nearly international rock music,
which could take place

anywhere. This capacity of hybridization has to do with the republican nation
building politics of

1923 related to Turkish music, making it so adaptable for a “westernization”.
