Where is the Homeland in My Music?: Interhomelands Migration

Belma OĞUL [1]


There are different types of migration, however, new concepts and redefinitions of certain concepts are needed, because of the changing reasons for migration as well as various imaginings of the places and spaces in concrete and virtual terms. This paper coins the phrase ’interhomeland migration’ as a type of migration through addressing how the concept of homeland is constructed through affect, and who constitutes this migrant type.

The data, obtained from fieldwork executed with those who identify themselves as Bosniaks (especially in Istanbul and nearby cities) since 2004 and with the Turkish-speaking people living in Bulgaria between 2013 and 201,5 is assessed by the means of analyses of both the discourses and various musical elements. In these examples, the affect of homeland is constituted by religion, flag, blood, land, especially fighting for the sake of this land, vague and non-objective nationalist concepts, shared historical and cultural background, such as musical values in addition to born and grown lands. Interhomelands migrant type experiences the affects containing contrasts all together such as feeling alike, feeling strange, feeling the belonging. These affects cause to uncover the similarities on the one hand and on the contrary to underline the dissimilarities on the other hand.
