Vahe Capar dances at an impromptu party at his home while Semsettin Donmez plays a variety of Turkish, Armenian and Arabic folk songs on his baglama. The partygoers were a diverse mix of Turks, Armenians and Arabs, as well as Muslims and Christians. The music and raki, an anise-flavored liquor, brought them together.
