Noun[edit]

makam (definite accusative makamı, plural makamlar)

  1. (music) medieval melodic mode. The makam system sets complex rules for cins (characteristic intervals) and seyir (melodic development) in classical genres such as Ottoman court music, mosque music, and Mevlevi music. The Arab مقام(maqām), or mode, is most closely related, the Persian دستگاه(dastgâh), Central Asian mugam, Indian rag and others are more distantly related.
