Men’s Turkish folk dance from the Black Sea area. Per Maouma, “The three guys doing the Turkish dance are Vedat (wearing the black t-shirt–he’s also in the other dancin pic). Neil (Robyn Friend’s husband) in the
grey shirt, and I’m pretty sure that it’s Ergun’s Tamer’s back to the camera. I think that it’s Halil sitting on stage playing the tabla balady (the large drum), while Omer Faruk Tekbilek and Halil Karaduman is standing playing some sort of wind instrument.
