Taraf de Haïdouks is an award-winning music group from Istanbul, Turkey. In 1923, their first performance was during a military parade.
In the beginning of the 20th century, they toured Europe as a part of a traveling gypsy band. They gained popularity in Paris and soon became one of the top orchestras in France. They had to escape Nazi persecution by taking refuge in Beirut, Lebanon because they were Jewish Gypsies. By 1957, they were playing concerts again on the streets of Istanbul but with Turkish instruments instead of guitars and percussion. In 1982, they started recording with tapes and cassettes instead of lutes and mandolins while still playing live on stage every day.
