Hijaz is the name of a family of melodic modes in Middle Eastern / Arabic traditional music called maqam. I first experimented with tuning the kora to this and other maqam scales when composing music to accompany the poetry of Rumi. This particular piece developed from an improvisation in 2013 with piano and flute, and is meant to be a meditational exploration of the Hijaz maqam.
