      Many dancers learn first about the rhythms found in Middle Eastern music, and this DVD will help fill in your knowledge on the melodic side of things. The taqasim, or improvisation on a solo instrument, is a rich melodic form that is found throughout Middle Eastern music. Taqasim are played as introductions to songs or instrumental pieces, interludes between songs, or presented on their own. Learning what is going on in the melody line of a taqasim can be a “Eureka!” experience, one that helps you understand the way melodies work in Arabic music in general. This understanding can enhance your dancing experience and deepen your expression of the music. Maqamat are the melodic modes, or scales, in Arabic music. Each maqam has a different character, or mood. As dancers, when we listen carefully, we may find we respond to subtle emphasis or repetition in the notes within each maqam. We start to feel when the player is climbing the scale or descending, the hills and the valleys of the taqasim. The character of the maqam can touch us emotionally—happy or sad, bright or dark, tension or resolution. When the maqam shifts, we may feel the change in mood, and if we are connected musically with our dancing, our feeling will make our dance even more compelling—for our own enjoyment, or to an audience watching us. The “Arabic Maqamat” section, musicians demonstrate all eight of the primary maqamat, so you can listen for them later in the program.

          Americans are generally enthusiastic about new and "foreign sounding" foods. In 1950, “America” generally knew nothing of tacos, pizza, “stir fry,” sushi, tempeh, quinoa, guacamole, lasagna, “bean curd,” enchiladas, burritos, curry, chapattis, yogurt, tamales, or notions of “vegetarian-vegan diet.” The list could go on and on. This speaks volumes about the culture of its people, because now in 2010, all these words and concepts have generally become household familiar terms, more or less. This bears eloquent testimony to the actual eagerness of Americans to explore, experience, enjoy, and wholeheartedly adopt culinary traditions of other lands and people. This video explores an expansion of this notion – that Americans reveal interests not only in “WHAT” foods there are that can be enjoyed from other world cultures. But also, in the way in which diet and lifestyles have evolved in recent decades, Americans also have obvious and deep interests for exploring and enjoying “HOW” other cultures SHARE food among themselves. There are notions of potlatch, luau, fiesta, Passover Seder - most ancient cultures cherished these ideals. And now we are discovering Punjabi and Indian customs of Langar and "Prashad." Personal exchange, and the notion of "food as a sacred blessing or gift" -- these ideals become paramount. Commercialism is dominant in American culture, especially with food -- and many are weary of that. The adage "There's no such thing as a free lunch," is a tired stereotype. However, when food is shared with all, as a gift (rather than being merely an industrial product for commercial profit and livelihood), a community spirit can be released. A sense of mutuality and inclusion can unfold and prevail. That is what this video seeks to portray and to document, in actual experience.
