Flutes Orientales Sacrées des Derviches Tourneurs - LP published in 1971 in France


Here a LP of music of the Whirling Dervishes which was wide spread in the 1970s and which sticks out by the participation of two outstanding musicians: the Ney player Hayri Tümer and the singer Münir Nurettin Selçuk (1900-1981). 
On Münir Nurettin Selçuk see: 
On Hayri Tümer see our post of a LP here.
For me Hayri Tümer is the greatest Ney player I ever heard. His music has something like an extra dimension. It is like blazing flames. Unfortunately he is today forgotten.

The genre is completely new to me but, yes, it's musically very striking. Many thanks!
