This is an arrangement by Muammer Sun of a folk song, most likely from Istanbul or vicinity.  There is also a Greek version of the song, suggesting the strong musical ties shared between the Greek and Turkish people.  Entarisi features a heptatonic melodic orientation (6 notes, G to Eb) and a traditional rhythmic mode (2+2+2+3=9/8).
