Istanbul: Ottoman classical music; Sufi culture and dervishes

Jump to last reply

We’ll be spending 2 weeks in Istanbul in the second half of September. A couple of questions:

(1) Any suggestions for places to hear Ottoman classical music? A concert that would provide more variety, eg with more maqams being covered, would be better since I haven’t listened to much of the music.

(2) Is there a Sufi cultural center which would be interesting to visit? While any part of Sufism would be ok, if it happens to be the Mevlevis that would be even better since I’ve read a little bit of Rumi, and because I would like to see the dervishes in their sama ceremony as well, so it would be nice to get some more cultural context. In addition, any recs on where to see the dervishes (ideally that are not done just as a tourist performance) would also be appreciated.

We will be based in the Cihangir/Cukucuma area, so anything nearby (or reachable by public transport or a short cab ride) would be preferred. Thanks!
