Here very fine Amanes by Roza made over the melodic rules of makam sabâ. I used them in Venice to demonstrate, how to perform a makam without the need of compositional preparation.

The text is:

Τίποτα δεν φοβήθηκα, σ᾽ αυτήν την κοινωνία, τον κόσμο τον διπρόσωπο και την αχαριστία.

Nothing frightens me within this society, within this world, neither its two faces nor its ingratitude.

The one who published it at youtube, compiled it with documentaries about the Great Catastrophe, when the Greek population was forced to leave Smyrna.

Makam sabâ is a little bit feared by traditional musicians, it is about the moment, when the human soul gets so sick about life that it has no longer the wish to stay. The current custom in Istanbul is, that the selak of the müezzin at 5 am is sung in this makam.

Je pense cette danse est beaucoup plus ancienne que les moyen-âges (comme référence assez satisfaisante je voudrais suggérer le traité médicale de Ibn Sina comment guérir un homme de sa folie d'amour, bien connue par l'expression arabe ‘īshq).

Ta question touche la vérité profonde qu'il ne reste pas beaucoup de moyen-âge, où il faut médiévaliser le présent... J'espère que la présence de Rosa dans la tradition de Rebetiko récompense ce défaut. Elle était en fait une vraie musicienne ottomane et post-ottomane. J'espère de vous retrouver demain à Venise !

À bientôt !
