We proudly present our latest release Ottoman Mehter Zurna which contains professionally played and recorded zurna melodies ready to take your musical experience to the next level!
Have you heard of the zurna? It's actually one of the oldest traditional wind instruments in Turkey, and it's super important for the mehter band. It's a really versatile instrument and can totally hold its own in a solo performance. The sound is pretty amazing too - it can be colourful, lively, pastoral, imposing, and emotional. You can get all sorts of sounds out of it, from sliding notes to short, sharp ones. The zurna is a big deal in military music too and has been around for many years. Even outside of official ceremonies, it's got a huge performance scene. You might hear it at a wedding in a small village in Anatolia, or at a party in a district of Istanbul. It's just one of those instruments that really fits in anywhere!
In detail, expect to find 710 MB of raw content featuring 126 beautifully played zurna loops at 90/110/130 BPM. Both dry and wet versions are provided giving a total of 252 files. All loops are key and tempo-labelled for ease of use, ready to fit straight in your tracks.
This instrument can be used across a variety of genres, whether it's cinematic, organic folk, experimental, ambient, meditation, electronica, and beyond! The only limit is your creative imagination…
