The Turkish Makam:

Sounds of Istanbul

February 28, 2018
Wednesday at 6pm
Tickets from Eventbrite

Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI), 50 Fitzroy Street, London W1T 5BT


The Anglo-Turkish Society and the Royal Anthropological Institute present an evening of music with Baha Yetkin, on the Oud, and Alexandros Koustas on the Klasik Kemençe.

Constantly evolving since the 13th century, the Turkish Makam has become one of the worlds’ great music traditions. With Istanbul as its centre, folk, religious and classical music forms of the city and nearby regions create an elaborate tapestry of sound colours. The Turkish Makam has served equally folk music and dance, court audiences as well as Mevlevi ceremonies.

London based Oud player Baha Yetkin explores the endless diversity of the Makam and its uses. An evening of music and a short discussion with the musicians.
