‘My eye sees nothing but your beauty,
And nothing enters my mind but you.
My heart has awaited you, answer me;
I have no patience, no patience, how can I be patient?’
— Abd al-Ghani al-Nabulsi (1641 – 1731)
A beautifully performed Mawwal by the multitalented Ahmed el Maai from The Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra. The mawwal (in the Bayati mode) seamlessly transitions to Rast, preparing the listeners for a whole new segment in the Rast mode/maqam.
