The melodic vocabulary of Turkish music is made up of makams or modes. There are microtones and no harmony in Turkish music. The violin (keman) uses ornaments similar to Greek music but the style is uniquely Turkish. Folk music, Roma music, Sufi music, Turkish classical music there are many genres and the violin plays in most of them. Well learn one tune each from a couple of genres and makams.
