Beschreibung
The 200-year-old war epic Dewrêsê Evdî (Dewresh, son of Evdi) is a highlight of the singing tradition of the Berazi Kurds, a tale of intertribal conflict and tragic love. This bilingual edition is based on a 1987 performance by the famous singer Baqi Xido from Kobani. It is one of the first studies of this kind on Western Kurmanji oral literature.The introduction, glossary and notes reflect numerous interviews with older Berazi Kurds with a nomadic past. This research approach enabled a very close semantic reading of the epic. Introduction and notes include details on migrating habits, place names, artifacts, clothing and Bedouin custom law as well as memories of Berazi singers and their performances. These interviews were checked against travelers' accounts, scholarly research and photographs from the Western Jazira. Inquiries were also made into singers' tools of oral-formulaic composition and the oral genres of the region.
As opposed to many Yezidi variants, the story of the Yezidi hero Dewrês is here sung by a Muslim singer. Besides, Baqî Xido's narrative mirrors factual relations among Kurds and Arabs up to World War II. As a result, there emerges the picture of a strong Kurmanji oral tradition in an ethnically mixed border region and shaped by the nomadic habits of the steppe.
