During Ramadan in Turkey, Muslims are traditionally woken for their pre-dawn meal by drummers who take to the streets.

This tradition is in danger of dying out, but in the city of Istanbul they are trying to find new ways to keep it alive.

Drummer Seydi Urut explains why he became a drummer and why it is so important to him.
