Tune of the Day: Damat Halayı

Traditional Turkish tune

“Damat Halayı” (usually translated as “Groom Dance”) is a common dance at Turkish weddings, but it is also popular as a party dance, and as a children's dance taught in schools. The exact origins of the tune are unclear. Most Turks think of it as a dance from Thracia (European Turkey), even though some Thracians say it comes from Bulgaria. Strong similarities can also be found with Greek and Macedonian dance tunes.

Thanks to Damla for suggesting this tune!
