If we review the history of Turkic people we will be marvelled by the linguistic, ethnographic and national variety of their customs and traditions. Among these nations it is possible to find religious ceremonies beginning from shamanism as well as ceremonies that have not been studied by scientists and which are typical for people who lived in Latin America. Exactly this aroused our interests in these fundamental issues.
One of these issues concerns the Zikr meditation which is common to Turkic People and exists in the depth of their cellular level.
As a result of conducting long nationwide research we came to the conclusion that one of the factors of strong martial spirit, freedom-love, pride and along with that the openness of these historical nations was and is the dance of martial Zikr meditation.
Even though in the conscience of Turkic people of Latin America, Caucasus, Siberia, Turkey, Central Asia and Uighurstan the system of Zikr meditation acquired other special forms at the same time it is a fact that the essence of the movement system, the mode of transmission of the music and also the musical instruments used in this meditation along with the frame of mind of the people remained unchanged (they are common).
