Sama'i

Sama'i

"Samā'ī" (Arabic: سماعي; from Turkish "saz semai" or "saz semaisi") is a genre of instrumental Turkish classical music. Along with the "peşrev" ("bashraf"), it was introduced into Arabic music in the 19th century, and became particularly popular in Egypt.

A "sama'i" is generally divided into four or five sections called "khanat" (singular "khana"). Each "khanat" is followed by a refrain called a "teslim". The "khanat" use an "iqa'" (meter) of 10/8 called "Samā'i Thaqil" (سماعي ثقيل), with the second-to-last section usually in triple meter (3/4, 3/8, 6/4, or 6/8; often "Yūruk Samā'i" (يورك سماعي; also called "Samā'i Dārij") before returning to 10/8 at the end.
