“Aman Aman!” is a concert program that will take it’s audiences on a
musical journey where they will be introduced to the Turkish Meyhane
(tavern) and the Greek Café Aman (coffeehouse). The tittle “Aman Aman !”
was thoughtfully chosen since “Aman” is an expression that is commonly
used in daily life by Turks and Greeks and can indicate a number of
moods/feelings including gratitude, surprise, joy and sorrow. Furthermore,
this expression is used by audiences to acknowledge the craftsmanship of
musicians during an instrumental or vocal improvisation as well. In fact,
particularly among Greek people, a vocal improvisation is called an
“Amane”.
