Baklahorani, anyone?[edit]

Despite the Turkish authorities' 1943 ban on the Greek Carnival, there's a revival initiative starting from 2010. Facebook page: [[1]]; example article Reviving Carnival in Istanbul: [[2]]. Who's interested? Vidimian, how about you? --CurvyEthyl 18:17, 21 January 2012 (EST)

Not sure if I'd be interested or not (I haven't heard about this before), but please feel free to add about this to the article. There is also a Wikipedia article about this carnival which has a little more detail from the NY Times blog you linked as well as external links to semi-official carnival webpage and other news sources. – Vidimian 19:43, 21 January 2012 (EST)
I've seen the Wikipedia article, but you can have a hear at this song. (I'm not sure if it's sung in Greek or Turkish, though.) --CurvyEthyl 19:51, 21 January 2012 (EST)
It's Greek before 2:45 and Turkish after that. – Vidimian 20:25, 21 January 2012 (EST)
I thought it was in one language. Post lyrics, if optional? --CurvyEthyl 20:57, 21 January 2012 (EST)
