Kardeş Türküler perform “Tencere Tava Havası” (“Sound of Pots and Pans”) in the streets of Istanbul this week. Check out the Kardeş Türküler’s website HERE for background on the group, which came into being in 1993 as a concert project by the Boğaziçi University Folklore Club.
And, here’s an explanation of the penguin footage later in the video from a Youtube comment:
“If people don’t know about it, the penguins mock mainstream media that has very close relations to the government. Main news channels have been nearly totally silent about the protests, not wanting to be hated by the government. One main news channel (CNNTurk) preferred to broadcast a penguin documentary while all of these are happening. Similar attitude from others. After being severely mocked by protesters, an apology and more coverage came.”
