Thread Name: What is The Tradition?
Subject: RE: What is The Tradition?
No other music scene besides the Anglo-American one had anything like the "revivalist" movement. The Turkish "özgün" genre is a bit like it, but they adopted a specific name for what they were doing fairly early on - in almost any record shop that still stocks it, their stuff is in separate bins from "halk" (traditional music, or somewhat rocked-up and electronified versions thereof).

I don't suppose there's an Arabic word for pork scratchings, either.
