Tune of the Day: İstiklâl Marşı

National anthem of Turkey

The “İstiklâl Marşı” (“Independence March”) was officially adopted as the Turkish National Anthem in 1921, two years before the establishment of the Republic of Turkey, both as a motivational tune for the troops fighting in the Turkish War of Independence, and as an anthem for a Republic that was yet to be established. It was composed by Zeki Üngör, a Turkish composer and violin virtuoso.

Thanks to Uygar for suggesting this tune!
