    "Turkish Baglama" by Earthtone
We are proud to announce “Turkish Baglama” a collection of traditional baglama melodies that have been professionally played by exceptional musicians to reflect its unique and characteristic sounds.

“Baglama” is the most commonly used string folk instrument in Turkey. It takes different names according to the regions and according to its size. It has three main parts called Tekne, Gogus and Sap. Tekne part is generally made from mulberry trees as well as from woods of juniper, beech, spruce or walnut. The gogus part is made from spruce and the sap section from homespun or juniper. There are pieces called burgu (screw) at the end of the sap which is opposite to tekne part to which the strings are tied. These screws are used for tuning. There are pitches on the sap tied with fish line. This instrument is played with a Mizrap or Tezene made from cherry wood bark or plastic and fingers are used in some regions. The later technique is called Selpe. If a single instrument were to represent Turkish folk music it would have to be the baglama cause it is used to express both joyful and sad emotions by the Turkish folk throughout the history.
