      * New Turkish Classical Chorus, San Rafael CA, USA

      North Bay Turkish Classical Music Ensemble

      A new ensemble is forming in the North San Francisco Bay Area for people who
      want to experience learning and perform Turkish Classical Music.

      This incredibly varied repertoire includes instrumental music, art songs, and
      Sufi music. It draws from the court, urban and religious music of Ottoman
      Turkey, and is still growing as today's gifted contemporary masters continue
      to add to the repertoire.

      For those familiar with the music, we will be exploring pesrevs, saz semais,
      sarkis, longas, ilahis and nefesler and other forms.

      We are looking for players of traditional Turkish classical instruments such
      as oud, ney, tanbur, kanun or kemence, bendir or kudum; or even western
      instruments that easily adapt to Turkish music, such as cello. We are also
      looking for people who can sing in Turkish. The group is open to anyone with
      a sincere interest in Turkish music.

      * Rumkale and Kasaba question and web pages

      Dear "Editor"

      I was interested to read TurkC-L message 123-137 concerning these
      places on the Euphrates. I have been conducting archaeological survey
      work along and around this part of Euphrates valley, now inundated by
      the Birecik dam, for the Franco-Turkish mission to Zeugma.

      Your readers may be interested to see the photographs of Rumkale on
      the website at www.ist.lu/zeugma/image gallery.

      I would welcome any more information about Rumkale and am happy to
      share my own knowledge of the area.

      I would particularly like to know if anyone can explain why the
      course of the nearby Roman road from Duluk (Doliche) to Samsat
      (Samosata) is known locally and on maps as the Sultan Murad Caddesi.

      Yours

      Just a reminder that well-known British journalist and co-author of "The
      Cyprus Conspiracy" (which was a candidate for the prestigious Orwell prize

      ------------------

      Origins of the Cyprus Problem; a lecture by Brendan O'Malley, journalist
      and co-author of "The Cyprus Conspiracy"

      What is the origin of the Cyprus problem? Who's to blame? The Turks? The
      Greeks? Or is it not as simple as that? What was the role of the US and
      Britain as well as other regional powers in the events that led to
      intercommunal violence in Cyprus? What were the interests at stake? Why did
      the people who lived together for hundreds of years take up arms against
      each other? Come and find out the answers to these questions and many more.
      See how the Cyprus problem fits in the puzzle of the Middle East.
