Madam Anahit by Hermetic-Wings Madam Anahit by Hermetic-Wings
Madam Anahit was born at Taksim/Talimhane at 1926 ın a house near the famous grocery shop named Niagora…Her family is very famous Armenian citizens of Istanbul. Her grandfather was a finance man at Ottoman placa also…His brother was a priest but, suicided at his young ages! She spent her summer holidays at Princess Islands…One of those days she expores love…She tells, she fell in love with a boy living close to their house and she got her first accordion lessons from him… When she asks to buy an accordion to her mother, her mother took her to a well-know shop named Papa Jorj. .It was 1940 and she began to play accordion …After her husband died at late 50’s she begin to play her enstrument at Çiçek Pasajı and she became a symbol of that place…She spends only half an hour at some restaurants at Passage… She often plays a song “ Papatya gibisin, beyaz ve ince…” If they gave her money she takes..If not, she never asks! …It was so hard work to play at such a place but she never drinks and smokes cigarettes…She begin with a cold water and then she continue with some fruit juices…After years she was a real trade mark….She played at some movies and she is known as most photographed person in Taksim square! Recently some people are trying to collect that amatuer shots to create a collection to be kept in a places that they will establish in her name!...
She got two famous children..Bigger duagther known is Nona Bella singin tango’s at my early ages but, the little daughther was even more famous. She is a very popular pop singer named Asu Maralman…
This is a tribute to Madam Anahit, ‘Cause she died at first of september 2004….And now Taksim has not it’s special melody by her lowered voice….”;Papatya gibisin, beyaz ve inceeeee…….”

2 sene kurtulus'ta oturdum, tüm komsular ermeni oldugu eski bir apartmanda, her aksam bize bir tabak birseyler gelirdi, üstümüzde yaslı bir cift vardı, bayan bir yere cıkarken anahtarı verirdi, beye arada bir bakıver oglum diye... öyle komsuluk baska bir binada veya semtte kısmet olmadı...

Oglumun sunnetinden önceydi...Esimle çiçek pazajında içiyorduk. Madam Anahit geldi. Caldı, biz söyledik. "Ayrılık, ayrılık aman ayrılık".. Hani Azeri agzı bır turkudur...
89 dan beri yalnız yaşıyorum, boşandık. Bu gunu insanları saygıyla bırlıktelıgı bırlıkte zor göturuyor. Şimdi apartmanlarda insanlar bırbırıne selam vermıyorlar. Biz hep Yıldız'da oturduk. Sokagımızda Ermeni komsularımız da vardı...Artık yoklar! Nereye gittiklerin bilmiyorum(z) O sıcak ahbaplıklar, tatlar ve doku değişti. İnsanlar walla-billa çok yalnız...
İçkili mekanlarda namusuyla ayrlık sarkıları calan halkın içşnden onlarla beraber eglenen veya hüzünlenen madam Anahitler yok artık. Senle ben gercek dısı bır öykunun kahramanlarından söz eder gibi onları anlatıyoruz. dıyanlara söz geliyro. Boş laf gibi...

Ziyaretin için tesekkur edrim :D

She was a very special person and everybody will remember her and show their respects to her memory...
As an accoredeon player you are so unlucky not to have a chanse to hear she plays..Once you hear her you may think that Sirenes are singing for Odisseus!..:nod:

Many times I thought that my connection in Istanbul is so strong that I really miss it!!!!
Every place has its secret sirenes and me like Odyseeus , believe me I stayed and traveled in Istanbul, alone, so I had the best chance also to hear the <<sirenes>> calling...!!!!
