Hey, are you Mr Tambourine man?

Wandering through the back streets of Istanbul, I came across this man totally immersed in painting what looked like tambourines. There was no sign on the shop to indicate what it sold and these objects were the only thing on display in the window. I’ve never heard of a shop devoted to a single humble musical instrument. Perhaps the tambourine is a key component of Turkish music? Maybe they aren’t tambourines after all. Could they be sieves or something else? A little mystery.
