arabs adapted greek music comment

+Enna Silkov Actually, the Arabs acquired musical manuscripts and such.....They adapted the Byzantine music! Modern Arabic...unless very, very rural is this fusion. The Balkans are other cultures like Slavs, Bulgars, Avars and Albanian (Illyrians) and such who borrowed. Not sure if they had composers and such . By the way, "Byzantine" is a bad word to use....they called themselves "Romaee" meaning "Romans" during the first half of the empire and then "Ellines" or "Sons of Ellas" during the later half!
