Marches were not notated until the late 16th century; until then, time was generally kept by percussion alone, often with improvised fife embellishment. With the extensive development of brass instruments, especially in the 19th century, marches became widely popular and were often elaborately orchestrated. Composers such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Hector Berlioz, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Gustav Mahler, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Charles Ives, Arnold Schoenberg, Igor Stravinsky, Alban Berg, Sergei Prokofiev, Paul Hindemith, Dmitri Shostakovich, and Leonard Bernstein wrote marches, sometimes incorporating them into operas, sonatas, suites, and symphonies. The popularity of John Philip Sousa's band marches has been unmatched.

Ottoman military music and military bands

The band's music is also often called Janissary music because the janissaries formed the core of the bands.

Janissaries began as elite corps made up through the devşirme system of child slavery, by which Albanians, Armenians, Bosnians, Bulgarians, Croats, Greeks, Serbs were taken, enslaved, Circumcised and converted to Islam, and incorporated into the Ottoman army.

Nice try.
