A maqam -- cognate with Hebrew MAKOM, literally PLACE -- is an Arabic and Ottoman Turkish musical mode. MizraŠł•i and Sephardic Jewish communities traditionally made religious and secular music using these modes. This class will give a short background to maqams and how they work and explore some examples from Jewish communities in the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey, and Greece. The instructor will demonstrate some of the music on the oud. There will be opportunities for singing, and musicians who want to join in are encouraged to bring an instrument. -- Guitars will work for some pieces, but instruments that can play microtones such as the violin family, clarinet, etc. are recommended.-- Led by Channing Dodson.
