Meddah Traditional

Meddahlık is an art of telling an improvised story, exhibited in the presence of imitators, jokes, gestures and facial expressions, to entertain the public through artists called meddah.

The success of art depends on Meddah's rhetorical ability and communication with the audience. Meddahlık, which is traditionally practiced on Ramadan nights, circumcision weddings and coffee houses, has the function of meeting the same time. The content of the stories is often determined by social and political criticism and the purpose of educating, sensitizing and educating the public.
