Military Music has played an important role in Turkish culture since ancient times. Playing of ceremonial music in Anatolian Seljuks, called naubat, was considered as an essential sign of sovereignty in Turkish principalities and constituted the basis of Ottoman military music. Military music helped the people to identify themselves with the central state, motivate the army during the heat of battle, regulated march of soldiers and used in announcing important news and praying times in daily life in Anatolian Seljuks. Military music became the symbol of sultans and the state in every important moment, from the naubat team of Sultan Alp Arslan, who opened the doors of Anatolia to Turks with his victory in the Battle of Malazgirt (1071) to the sending of a naubat team by Giyas aldin Masud II to the founder of the Ottoman Empire, Osman Ghazi in 1299.
