Turkish Singer Distorts `Adana Lamentation´ Song Devoted to Genocide

12 Jan 05
She Calls this Sacrilege a Wish to Talk of Genocide
The first song of Turkish singer Seden Gurel's "Bir Kadin Sarki
Sylyor" album (2004) is the Armenian song known as "Adana Lamentation"
devoted to the massacres of Adana's Armenian population in 1909. In
her album "Adana Lamentation" turned into a love song titled "Sebebim
Ask" - "The Reason is Love".
Sibel Alas is the author of the words, and Istanbul Armenian Shirak
Shahrikian 's duduk accompanies the song. The latter's participation
in this sacrilege aroused the indignation of the Armenian community in
Istanbul. Shahrikian wrote an article in Turkish for www.bolsahays.com
Armenian website trying to justify himself where he says that the
Armenians' disapproval was expressed by numerous phone calls. Seden
Gurel, in her turn, wrote a letter in Septemberof 2004 where she tries
to convince that the aim of the song was to tell the Turkish people of
the Genocide (Gurel used the word "soykirim" - genocide- thus
recognizing the Armenian genocide).
It's hard to say how the Turkish society learns about the Armenian
Genocide by listening to "The Reason is Love". The song was
broadcasted by one of Turkish state TV channels on April 24 with the
accompaniment of semi-naked Turkish women's dance.
The song's video clipping is available at
