Erzurum, one of the most influential cities in the transformation of Central Asia’s Ozan tradition into the Aşık tradition in Anatolia, has raised many âşıks. One of these âşık is the Aşık Sümmani of Narman, who was born into a time when âşık tradition gradually fall from grace in Anatolia and brought a new color and excitement to the tradition with his poems written in a different style. Sümmani interpreted his poems with a unique style and air and he brought a new mode known as ‘Sümmani Ağzı’ to Turkish âşık tradition and music. Âşık Sümmani, who drew inspiration from real life and dream world, meticulously reflected this synthesis to his poems. He is a Anatolian âşık, who created immortal works and made his poetry unique by telling his observation and what’s hidden behind the visible in his own voice.
