Turkish Music

Belly dancing is very popular in Turkey. The music is authentic Turkish music, with instruments like ‘tef’, which is a tambourine, and the zither.

The zither is in the shape of a box, with strings across it, and it is played by using a pick, to strum, like a guitar.

Folk music is very popular in Turkey. Lots of instruments are used in folk music, such as bağlama, which is an instrument with strings, which looks a bit like a guitar with no hole, tulum, which is like a Scottish bagpipe and you have to blow into it to make a loud noise, and sipsi, which is an long tube you blow into, a bit like a clarinet.

Belly dancing music usually has drums (tabla) and sometimes the belly dancer has little cymbals on their fingers, which they click to the music.
