What's special about arabic music ?
Arabic music is the kind of music heard in the arabic countries from the Gulf to the Maghreb. These countries include Egypt, Lebanon, Alger etc... The arabic music uses accoustic and electric instruments, but every instrument used should be able to play arabic scales. These scales are not chromatic scales like the major and minor scales used in occidental music. Arabic scales use quarter tones in addition to the semitones used in the chromatic scale. Some common arabic scales are named : Bayate, Hijaz, Sica, Saba etc... A song may use more than one scale.

Modern arabic songs tend now to avoid using arabic  scales trying to approach new generations and occidental countries.
