Which maqams go well with Saba?

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'm back her with even more information about the Saba :P
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
