Song Description

Saba Samir is a traditional Egyptian instrumental song. The song is based on Saba. Saba is the name of one of the many Arabic keys. An Arabic key is called a maqam. The song is based on a melody played in the maqam of Saba. Traditionally the song includes melodic breakdowns with drum fills and room for solos on melodic instruments. We took the liberty of putting a modern spin on the song. We added a modern dance groove, more bass, longer drum fills, solos on both the Middle Eastern mizmar (Middle Eastern double reeded horn) and the cimbalom (Hungarian / Central Eastern European hammered dulcimer) and a vocal / doumbek (Middle Eastern drum) breakdown that shoots the song into a crazy double time finale. In addition to the mizmar, doumbek and cimbalom, we feature oud (Middle Eastern lute), midjwiz (Middle Eastern reeded flute), doumbek, riq (Middle Eastern tambourine), def (Middle Eastern frame drum), davul (Middle Eastern folk drum) and we allow the modern drum and bass to propel this classic piece into the modern world of pop.
