Katibim is a well known Turkish Folk Song, that i decided to cover upon a request of one of my foreign friends. I was just thinking the song’s origin is absolutely Turkish. The story of the song was so clear to me.
However, through my search on the net, I see that many other nations also claimed that this same song is their own folk song.
For example Greek, Macedonian, Bulgarian and also Serbian people know about the same song.
There is an interesting documentary named ‘Whose Is this Song’, that prepared by a curious foreign documentarist. I advice you to take a look.
In fact the source is the same: Balkans!
