    Keskin and Kırşehir constitute the epicentre of the Central Anatolian Folk Music inherited from “abdal” culture. This world-renowned music style is mainly performed with drums, zurna (traditional double-reed woodwind instrument), bağlama (stringed musical instrument), violin and spoons. Keskin folk songs express blues with bozlaks and happiness with traditional dance music.
