The Bakshys have been a major role the spread of epics among the Turkmens. Respect and love for the Bakshys can also be seen in the proverbs widely spread among the people Bakhshy in the ancient Turkish cultural life combines descriptions such as «dancing, medicine, magic, musicology, poetry». The Turkmen bakshys are divided into two groups: the «termechi» and the «dastan teller». The termeches are educated, and they read the Turkmen epics with a great pleasure. They are also called «gissachi»by the people. Plenty of time the word «mullah» is added to the beginnings of the «gissachi»for example Molla Nafas, Molla Puri and more. In Turkmenistan, a narrator who speaks from the beginning to the end is called a «dastanchi bakshy». It is appropriate to use the word not only for the executers but also for the poets who wrote the epic. The epic tellers are called, «ozan, gissachi, bakshy». The article also deals with oral Turkmen epics up to written literature. The virtues of singing türkü(ballad) are exaggerated.

Keywords: Ozan, bakshy, epic (dastan), türkü (ballad), gissa, gophuz, tanbur.
