What is Middle Eastern Music? A Discussion on What's Period and What's Not
Majda Anwar

The development of Middle Eastern music forms is closely tied to the poetry and song that has been a part of Middle East since before Islam, and contrary to popular belief, has been well documented. In this discussion based class, participants can expect to hear sound samples of Middle Eastern musical modes and rhythms, learn period terms for music, and get a better idea of how music was made and accepted from a cultural context in the Medieval Age. A handout will be provided for students. This is intended as a survey class to help frame the Arabic Maqam class for dancers.

Emoting to the Middle Eastern Music through Dance: An Exploration of the Maqamat
Majda Anwar

In Middle Eastern music, musicians strive for Tarab, or "enchantment", of the audience. The idea of Tarab spans all arts of the Middle East - including dance. In this workshop, Majda will introduce basic theory of the Middle Eastern Maqamat, or musical modes, in order for dancers to recognize the difference between the major modal families of maqamat. In addition to ear training and getting used to the quarter tone system that makes the maqamat unique, dancers will also be guided through how to emote these different modes.
