The classical, or art, music of Turkey was developed during the Ottoman period in the court palaces and Sufi orders. A key feature is the system of modes known as ‘makams’, each with its own mood, or for the Sufis, with its own spiritual state. Another feature is the ‘usul’ or rhythmic modes, often using long rhythmic cycles adding drama to the music. The traditional or folk music of Turkey also shares the makam and usul systems though often in a less developed, but freer manner.
