A Makam, the basic concept of all oriental music, is more than a scale. It includes rules of how to make use of the notes given. When these rules are followed, very different feelings can be created with the same scales or notes.

We will improvise together, starting with just a few notes and then, following the rules of the respective Makam, broaden the range. By doing this, we will develop new ideas of how to use the whole range of our scale and/or instrument and explore the richness of even single notes.

In the end, we will not only have gained ideas about the most common makams and makam concepts in general, but also a new vision on improvisation in general. All instruments and voice welcome.

Basic musical knowledge required.

Workshop language ist German and/or English according to the needs of the participants.
