Title: Which maqams go well with Saba?
Post by: Loona on March 25, 2015, 08:17:44 AM
Do you guys think that Saba is its own maqam or do you think there are some maqams that go with it, what's your opinion on this?

Actually, I think this statement is true. Saba really is a maqam in itself, if you think about it. But it's easy to get confused about these things, good thing you asked though!

I think we are all a bit confused here.
Is anyone here able to explain what exactly a saba really is?

Meanwhile, I'd say I agree with BearHug. This is just a short video I found, take a look and listen closely:

I found this great collection of samples of the maqam saba family.
You can just check it out here: http://www.maqamworld.com/maqamat/saba.html
