Works from the Ottoman court tradition, dance forms and songs in the makam (modal) tradition, set to varying cycles of percussion. Sets typically begin and end with taksim (improvisation) either with a soloist or the entire group. At other times, improvisation occurs spontaneously over an ostinato, within or between pieces.
