If you ask about "Kerimoðlu Zeybeði", I haven´t heard before but here, there is a long story about it:



It talks about a guy. There is a system about tobacco (some complicated). there is an organization. tobacco producers have to sell their products to them, but people don´t want to sell their tobacco to this organization. This guy is ready to fight against to this system. One day, he dances without a permission in a wedding ceremony (I guess about this tobacco issue) and then the old people start to fight them because of this unrespectful manner. And then he shots someone, and escapes. People can´t catch him, and ask help from someone who called "Kör Arap" (Blind Arab). He can find and kill him but perficiously, while he is sleeping. On the other hand there is a girl who loves this guy, and she dies because of the suffer as well.


In the lyrics, it mentions "there is no brave man but Arap, so now this is the time to play (dance) for you" as a sarcasm, that this man, "Kör Arap", killed the guy without a bravery. It says "he went (died), don´t touch him, no one is killed while he is sleeping" as a requiem.


This guy´s name is Eyüp" and because of his father´s name, "Kerim", he is called "Kerimoðlu Eyüp". That song´s name is about it "kerimoðlu", and zeybek is a type of this ryhtm or song.


I don´t know if that story is real or a lie. But that is written in that page. For me, it was not written much "believable" but maybe it is just because of the writer to that page.
