Turkish Classical music is a genre of traditional music from Turkey that dates back to the 13th century. It is characterized by its use of complex rhythms, intricate melodies, and improvisation. It is often performed by a small ensemble of musicians, including a lead singer, a stringed instrument (such as the saz or bağlama), a percussion instrument (such as the darbuka or davul), and a wind instrument (such as the ney or zurna). The music is often accompanied by a variety of traditional dances, such as the halay, köçek, and zeybek. Turkish Classical music is an important part of the country's cultural heritage and is still widely performed today.
