Check out these guys. The ones with the long white draping headdresses represent the Janissaries of the Ottoman Empire.

Yeah, those guys are wicked :). Us Turks sing that song while we are overjoyed with something (like going to important soccer matches :)). Actually they were Janissaries, but now, they are just mere reminder of those days. But I love the music. Let me see and find a mp3 of the song :).

Edit:
Here you go, you can find all their songs here:

The one you hear in the video is Ceddin Deden. Enjoy :).

Im a member of YouTube and use that to look for good songs I can d/l later. I already have Ceddin Deden long before I even made this thread. But thanks anyway.

I just wanted to share this music with the rest of the forum.

I may not be a Turk, but I have an interest for anything Asia. Which IMO, stretches from Turkey in the West, to Russia in the North, to the Maldives in the South, to Papua New Guinea in the East.

Man... is our continent huge or what? lol :lol:
