Bingeol (Armenia)


Bingeol (BIHN-guhl) is the name of a village in former West Armenia (now the Anatolia region of Turkey). The village, written Bingöl in Turkish, is located 10 kilometers east of Sivas. The lyrics were written by Avedik Isahakian (1875-1957), a native of the city of Gumri in northern Armenia in the old tradition of troubadours. This rendition of the song is sung by Haig Yazdjian. This dance was choreographed by Tineke Van Geel based on traditional steps. Tineke presented the dance at the 2019 Stockton Folk Dance Camp held at University of the Pacific. Dance notes…
