Abstract: Olcay Muslu Gardner discusses the interrelated parameters of intangible cultural heritage and the actors which play a role in the sustainability of music in Sanlıurfa-Turkey. This study is based on fieldwork which began in 1998, and a more in-depth analysis which was conducted between 2012-2019 in western Anatolia andsoutheast Turkey. She focuses on traditional “sıra-sohbet” meetings, which were accepted by UNESCO as examples of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2010, and illustrates the dynamics which affect both their continuity and discontinuity.
