Haf%C4%B1z Post

Haf?z Post (Tanburi Mehmet) (c.1630–1694) was a composer and performer of Turkish music during Ottoman Empire era in ?stanbul.


His father was an imam. He was trained well in literature, music and foreign languages such as Persian and Arabic. He was a member of Halvetiye order and became a haf?z. After travelling to Mecca (modern Saudi Arabia which then was a part of the Ottoman Empire) for pilgrimage, he began attending to fas?ls (chorus) of Ottoman classical music in the palace of Mehmet IV (reigned 1648-1687) both as a singer and as a tambur player. Like most other musicians, he was supported by Selim I Giray, the Crimean Khan who was a musician himself and probably his tutor in tambur playing.[1]
