Since the time of Ancient Greece, the region now known as Turkey has been at the crossroads of civilization. Istanbul, also known as Constantinople or Byzantium was one of the largest cities in the Ottoman Empire. Located between Europe, Asia and the Middle East, the country and the culture offers a unique blend of multiculturalism from time immemorial.
Turkish food has flavors from Asia, Greece, Jewish, Middle Eastern and Balkan dishes. The music is beautifully syncopated and when blended with psychedelic music it's amazing. Listen to Baba Zula
