Description
This class will cover songs from the Near & Middle East, including the lyrics, meaning, melody, maqam and rhythms that accompany them. No prior experience needed – singing is for everyone! We will also explore how these songs relate to period music. Melody players and percussionists are welcome to bring their instruments, but be aware that some of these songs include quarter-tones, not playable on many Western instruments.
