Sanliurfa

The Şanlıurfa municipality, which restores the Yasin's 'Kahvesi' in Harrankapı, the heart of Sanliurfa's music, transforms it into a musical museum. Ibrahim Tatlises' name was given to the music museum with the votes of the members of Şanlıurfa Municipal Assembly. It is possible to get to know Şanlıurfa artists closely at the Ibrahim Tatlises Music Museum, which was opened on 25 of September, 2011. In addition to the artists who continue to the art life in the Musical Museum today, the photographs of the deceased artists are displayed with sculptures made of wax.


One of the aims of the music museum is to archive the works of Şanlıurfa artists and make their albums unforgettable for life. The museum exhibits instruments from past to present instrumentations, photographs of artists and writings about their lives. While visiting the museum, visitors can listen to the works of the artists by wearing earphones.
