About

The name of the band MAQAMUNDO reflects its program: it is a fusion of Arabic music (MAQAM: Arabic music scale) and Flamenco music (MUNDO: Spanish, meaning world). When the four musicians met in 2012 they all agreed that both traditions were complementary, overlapping and a great source of inspiration.

MAQAMUNDO stands for music which brings together Oriental and Western culture in a fresh and modern way. Besides well-known pieces from the Arabic and Spanish tradition MAQAMUNDO is mainly performing the compositions of their oud player Maruan Betawi. This is also reflected in the band’s debut album „Orient spirit“ (released in 2020).

MAQAMUNDO is based in Munich-Germany. The four band members are all great specialists in their instruments pursuing their individual artistic carriers in different national and international projects and bands.
