Link of the week:
Turkish folk dance from Black Sea region
(danced by Bora Ozkok and Iver Cooper, June 1992).

Bora Özkök
This week's link of the week is a tribute to Bora Özkök, who passed away on August 8. Bora was the first person to introduce Turkish dance, music and folklore to North American folk dancers in the 1970s and 1980s. Among the dances he taught us are: Ali Paşa, Kendime, İçê Hendek, Bariş Halay, Çepikli, Delile, Gün Ola and many others (verbiage from a FB post by Yves Moreau).
