Here in Shutka, we hold an annual competition in cassettes to determine who has the most, the best and the oldest Turkish songs and singers.
The lovers of Turkish music are divided into 2 camps. The first camp fronted by Uncle Jashar, drinks only juice and is totally focussed on the lyrics and the clarity of sound. The other camp is fronted by Uncle Fejm They claim they have to drink a bit of alcohol in order to connect emotionally with Turkish Music. They like to drink and get wasted and fall into a coma.
Winning the trophy in Shutka means more than winning the World Cup in soccer. The contestants try to turn up the volume as high as possible to demonstrate the clarity of the recording. The contestants score points when their choice of music compells the audience to dance. Highest points are awarded if you can make the audience weep. Then they call you an ace.
