Apryl Knight's Thing A Week #6 - "Uskudar"
For this week's thing, I perform a song that is popular in many countries around the former Ottoman Empire. In Turkey, it is known as Üsküdar; in Greece, Apo Xeno Topo (Aπό ξένο τόπο). The tune is also known all over the Balkans. For more information on this "Queen of traveling melodies”, click here - http://riowang.blogspot.com/2009/10/whose-is-this-song.html
For those of you who were expecting to see me as a certain Mother of Dragons this week...well, I'm in Texas, and it is still pretty warm here. But tune in next week...Winter Is Coming.
