TRANSFORMATION OF CULTURAL IDENTITY AMONG THE TURKISH DIASPORIC YOUTH: HIPHOP, INTEGRATION AND ENTERTAINMENT PLACES

Abstract

Author(s): Onur SENEL

This article investigates transformations in the music and entertainment culture of Turkish migrant youth who were born and raised in Germany. Within this concept, firstly definitions of both the culture and diaspora which lead to the idea of integration and discrimination, or alternative ideas like syncretism, are explained. Secondly, questions such as how hip-hop culture, especially rap music, has developed against racism and discrimination, along with how it is accepted as a new cultural style and why hip-hop is being accepted as a foreign culture’s rebellion against established order with support by the German State, are answered. In addition to this, social and cultural transformations which are seen in entertainment places in Turkish migrant life and the relationship between cultural, social and economic transformations are illustrated.
