Maqamworld is a really cool website. Although primarily an educational website for musicians learning or interested in classical Arabic/Middle Eastern music, each maqam page also includes recording samples of pieces composed in that maqam which is great for people like me who lack the musical talent but not the interest. Here are some of my favorite pieces: AlNikriz, AlHijaz (Foug Il Nakhal), AlBayati, Nahawand. While surfing I also came across interesting pieces of “uyghur muqams” which I thought are a fascinating mix of classical Middle Eastern and Chinese music. Enjoy!
