This essay deals with Turkish martial-type music in the early days of World War I. I focus on two military marches, one Armenian, the other Turkish, which are both sung with the same melody. The former achieved a heterogeneous and imperialist consensus, while the latter served to promote a dissident nationalism. This essay aims at highlighting the very ambivalent nature of music: the same melody was used to promote either pluralism or chauvinism during a critical moment in the history of Turkey.
