Doctors at a hospital in Istanbul are turning to an unusual form of medicine – music. Music therapy may sound a strange approach to modern medicine but according to doctors at the Memorial hospital in the Turkish capital it is producing results. The man behind the drive is Professor Bingur Sonmez and he has been joined by his colleagues Dr Erol Can and Mehmet Susam in order to revive the traditional Islamic idea of music therapy. Pictured above: Dr Erol Can (centre), plays a yayli tanbur (an Ottoman violin) with Professor Bingur Sonmez (left) holding a flute and Mehmet Susam (right) playing guitar.
