Muqaddima Hijaz

An Iraqi composition, "Muqadimma Hijaz" is an instrumental prelude in the mode of hijâz. It is usually played at concerts as a prelude to a song in the same melodic mode, as in this case where it introduces the songs in hijaz in Track 3. "Muqadimma Hijaz" is a secular piece, and not associated with a specific religious group or occasion.
