Since Ramadan 2013 is just over I thought it would be appropriate to include an entry on the music of Ramadan.
Often accompanying the iftar meal during Ramadan are live music performances known as fas?l, a style of music from the Ottoman period.
The iftar meal with which one breaks a day’s fast during the month of Ramadan is very frequently accompanied by what is known as fas?l music. Restaurants, whether or not they’re in hotels, often boast of providing live fas?l music. It is most often compared with the chants of the medieval Roman Catholic Church although the latter seem far less complicated.
