Representing Turkey for the second time this year, Yunus Emre Enstitüsü was followed with interest at the festival it participated in as part of the 2021 Yunus Emre Year events. Presenting Yunus Emre’s message of universal love, brotherhood and friendship to the attention of people, the Enstitü drew attention to this universality by participating in the festival with a group of musicians from different countries. In line with the measures taken due to the epidemic conditions, the concert, which was held with a limited number of participants, was followed with interest.
