  end_note:           The ending note index in the SymbTr-txt score
  name:               The basic semantic name of the section. Right now, it is the name 
                      (TESLİM, ARANAĞME...) annotated in the score for instumental sections or 
                      "VOCAL_SECTION" for vocal sections.   
  melodic_structure:  Melodic semiotic label
  lyric_structure:    Lyrical semiotic label    
  lyrics:             Lyrics of the section
  slug:               The processed version of "name" field with the Turkish characters and
