Maqam-Al-Iraqi - Three concerts in Bonn, Cologne and Baghdad broadcast in 1977, 1978 & 1979 by WDR, Cologne, Germany


Here our second post in our series of recordings of the Maqam music of Iraq. Here we have longer Maqam suites which give a much better impression of this great musical tradition.
Many thanks to our friend KF who recorded these broadcasts, made a double CD out of them and created the covers. Many thanks for sharing them generously.

thank you for all of your work on this website!

Just as an fyi, the final track of the first disc skips about half way through.

I only can detect an extremely small skip somewhere between 6:35 and 7:00. This is an old recording from the radio done on cassette and transferred to CD about 20 years ago. I can't do anything about this skip.I guess it is in the recording.
The work this implied I could have used to publish another post.
