Murat Bey, bence fotoğrafın ismini ingilizce koymanız fotoğrafın burdaki anlamını bir hayli etkilemiş çünkü tüm yabancı sitelerde de kendi ismi le geçen mehter müziği ve mehteran alayıni ingilizceye adapte etme bence olmamış. Kısa bir infoda ben eklersem
With Osman Gazi in 1299 began the mehteran to play for ages in wars, shows and celebrations saying: "Blood is his hand, blood is his sword, bare is his breast, full of trance his heart. Passing with joy on the road to Allah"
In 1826 they were abolished, in 1911 they formed again a team, in 1914 they organized and took the name Mehterhane-i Hakani (Royal Mehter Band).
They witnessed World War I and the War of Independence.
Beethoven and many western musicians composed music inspired by them.
