This is one of those adwar I've mentioned before on other threads and one
which I hold dear to my heart. It's just so beautiful, even though I don't understand
the words. Its melody is simply the embodiment of tarab for me. These
three great performers have each imbued this dawr to Dalansheen maqam with their
own respective, unique approach.

Sayyid as-Safti - Dawr "Fouadi Amro 'Agib" (Dalansheen)

Yusuf al-Manyalawi - Dawr "Fouadi Amro 'Agib" (Dalansheen)

Sayyid Makkawi - Dawr "Fouadi Amro 'Agib" (Dalansheen)

And this young Egyptian-Jewish cantos has spotlessly performed the Hebrew
version of this dawr, "Yedidi Imro Agid,"* following Sayyid Makkawi's rendition.
His voice, reminiscent of the Nahda era, is captivating, and his precision
at tackling this difficult dawr is praise-worthy.

David Tsaliah - Dawr "Yedidi Imro Agid" (Dalansheen)

* I shall tell My friend's/beloved's (God's) word. Full lyrics here.

Muḥammad Al-‘Aqqād with his qanun -> http://ethnomusicologie.revues.org/docannexe/image/464/img-2.png


Part 2 answers my question: there were two schools, old vs new.

‘arabāt reminds me of the use of the piston on the chromatic harmonica -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlnK2sa7mm4
I would say: "go and buy a diatonic harmonica!"
It's a matter of taste ...

Clarification on the Dawr :)
I must admit that I have not taken the time to clearly identify each part of each dawr. On the last record, it's a pity not to hear the aqṣāk rhythm. I wonder if there is a riqq or if the rhythm is implicit within the melody.

I couldn't hear any percussion although they mention Maḥmūd Raḥmī
on the riqq. Perhaps the aqṣāk rhythm they refer to is in the first
part of the dawr, the madhhab. All I could discern was that the dawr
is in nawa athar or at least the dulab is.

I can hear when the rhythm changes, but like most of these old recordings the riqq disappears ...

011 – Dawr Kādnī el-hawa

http://www.amar-foundation.org/011-kadni-el-hawa/

They write that the dawr is in nahawand, sub-maqam 'ushshaq.
I've seen somewhere else that the dawr is in nawa-athar, which is
why I've written this maqam in my earlier post with links to the three
interpretations I've found, two of which are analyzed in this podcast.
Is there some major difference between the two sub-maqamat?

There is a Hebrew version for this dawr, but no recordings of it whatsoever.
It's called "Be'vet Nava" (In the fair one's house=the holy temple). I wish I had
the voice or knowledge of maqamat to attempt a recording of it. Such a beautiful
dawr!

An analysis of Abdel-Wahhab's mawwal zanjaran "Amana Ya Leil" by Samy
Abu-Shumays, mentioned in the above podcast as the 2nd type of 5 hemstitches
mawawil, the kind that already has a set-melody, with very few truly improvised
parts. I would've very much liked to witness the performers sitting down and agreeing
on some set paths the mawwal and individual taqasim would take. Regardless
of whether this particular mawwal has any or very few improvised parts,
it is just so sweet to my ears. Zanjaran is quite a beautiful maqam.

http://maqamlessons.com/analysis/amanayaleil.html

Oh, and I've also got a confirmation in this podcast that Saleh Abdel Hay's
qanun player was Muhammad Abduh Saleh. Thoroughly astonishing
sikah mawwal and taqsim . :bowdown:

019 – Mawwāl Sāhī el-gufūn, Samaa

http://www.amar-foundation.org/019-mawwal-sahi-el-gufun/

Fascinating podcast, dealing with the same mawwal recorded by various
performers, both from a literary standpoint, and melodically.

There could not be a better site dedicated to Arabic music. Is there any way to download these podcasts for listening later? I only seem to get the web browser option. Let me know if you've had better luck. Thanks.

The staff did a great job, they upload the podcasts in .mp3. You can "Save Target As" with the right click on the link.

023 – Qaṣīda “Arāka ‘aṣiyy al-dam‘ ”, Part 2, Samaa

http://www.amar-foundation.org/023-araka-assiyy-al-dam-part-2/

All* of the recordings of Qaṣīda “Arāka ‘aṣiyy al-dam‘ ” on 4shared (Not mine):

http://www.4shared.com/folder/mZfbNF4V/__online.html

I like their description of Saleh Abdel Hay in this podcast:

Quote:

Some tried to get rid of what in their opinion was dust on the heritage, but one knight alone went on defending Al-Ḥāmūlī’s legacy till the 1950s.


Quote:

In my opinion, Ṣāliḥ is a tragic character, a “Don Quixote” carrying a spear and attacking the mills.


* Oum Kalthoum's version, as well as her mentor's, sheikh Abu l3eila Muhammad --
whose version was only excerpted on one of the earlier podcasts
-- are not on this list.
