DEMİR, Tuğçe, “Inner Asian and Chinese Cultural Relations during Tang Dynasty: Music and Dance (618-906)’’, Master’s Thesis, Ankara, 2020. In the thesis, first of all, people who lived in Tang dynasty and went to China for various purposes from foreign countries will be examined. With the intention of benefiting from the wealth of China at that time, various communities came to especially the capitals (Chang’an and Luoyang) and resided in these cities or conveyed China's rich culture and civilization to their own countries by staying for a short time or a long time. In addition, this cultural exchange was not single-sided, and the cultural diversity of foreign people in Tang China enriched life. In the first part, these communities were researched. Second of all, Inner Asian dancers and musical instruments and musicians who came to China at the time of the Tang family were examined comparatively. People from foreign countries coming to China along the ancient Silk Road contributed to the Tang family's cultural improvement in the field of music and dance as well as in other fields. The foreign expansion policy in the Tang family started with the occupation of Inner Asia between 630-661 and the domination continued until the Battle of Talas in 751. After this date, relations with Inner Asia gradually improved. During this period, the purchasing power of the Tang family was very high. The merchants brought the dancers and various musical instruments of their country to the Chinese territory along with the caravans. Chinese rulers and people of the time were closely interested in the dance and music of different cultures. As a result of this, local music in China and folk music of foreign countries integrated and a different and unique understanding of music emerged. The importance given to art during the Tang family was understood from the interest shown by the ruler Xuanzong (玄宗,712-756) to the dance and music groups of Inner Asia, which was presented as tribute or captive. In this thesis, the effects of people from Inner Asia, dance and music on Chinese society have been examined thoroughly and the main sources in English and Chinese have been handled and the differences between the sources are tried to be presented.
