This thread epitomizes what mudcat is all about at its best. Thank you.

Dum question: I have a wonderful piece of Azeri music from the 50's called "Azerbaiyan Mugam" by Fikret Amirof. I did some web searching and found that mugam was a music form. My question: Is "mugam" related to "makam" as a similar form of music?

The Azeris are an Islamic non-Arab people, who used to be one of the SSRs and are now independent.
