Diriliş: Ertuğrul and the Rubab

Remember that we told you that the rubab was widespread across much of Central Asia(you probably don’t, but that’s fine)? Well, now we have further proof; the theme song of Diriliş: Ertuğrul (also known as Ertugrul Ghazi in Pakistan in its Urdu-dubbed version), the wildly popular Turkish television series, features the rubab prominently. It is quite fascinating, as we had no idea that the rubab could even be found in Turkey, on the far side of Central Asia. Though, then again, one of the intriguing facts of Pakistani music that many of the instruments which are integral to it are often found across the world, like the harmonium, for instance.
