The epic culture, folk tales and music of Dede Qorqud/Korkyt Ata/Dede Korkut are based on twelve heroic legends, stories and tales and thirteen traditional musical compositions transmitted through oral expressions, performing arts, cultural codes and musical compositions. Dede Qorqud appears in each story as a legendary, wise character whose words, music and expressions of wisdom relate to traditions of birth, marriage and death. The practice contains profound knowledge about the history and culture of Turkic-speaking communities and is practised and sustained on a wide variety of occasions.
