Karacaoğlan

Karacaoğlan: Traveler, âşık, saint, folk poet. He is an âşık, who traveled Anatolia singing his koşmas, bring the places he saw to life in his poetry. The mountains, plateaus, lads, brides, and girls of his home meet with eternity on Karacaoğlan’s poems. He draws the cultural atlas of the places he visited in his koşmas. In his rindânes every belle is his beloved and every love of his is beautiful… the places he visited, the roads he walked on brought him separation, simplicity and righteousness. The possibility of “leaving without returning and coming back to nothing” is so alive on his mind, this idea of being away always reminded Karacaoğlan the mortality and pointed him towards the simplicity, righteousness and sincerity. Karacaoğlan has questioned before him. He recognized his preceders, weighing his word on the scale that they had created. He preserved the yeast of the dough that has been Kneaded by hands of Anatolia for centuries and kept it alive and entrusted it to his successors. If we questions preceders on the same subject, we will be told that “Once there was a Karacaoğlan”.
