Episode 19


This episode we visit the ancient lands of Egypt.
From Folkloric, Nubian to Saidi (Upper Egyptian)sounds, we explore
the old and new arabic music where classical instruments such as the oud, qanun and ney are widely used.

The tonal structure of Oriental Middle Eastern music is defined by the maqamat, loosely similar to the Western modes, while the rhythm of Middle Eastern music is governed by the iqa'at, standard rhythmic modes formed by combinations of accented and unaccented beats and rests (wikipedia).
