the very current music of middle east is entirely newly invented greek
music itself..you can just call it copy and paste job....it's well
documented that how arabs took greek music so they call music in arabic
musigi which is came from greek word...ancient arabic and persian music
sounded nothing like this or what they play nowadays...because they
literally copied greek music that was newly invented in hellnic
period(like a lot of things invented in hellenic period, music was
innovated also, most famous example is music scales invented by
phythagoras)... but it's right, before this, there were common music
shared throughout mediterranean area...but that was not exactly current
greek and middle east music because greek had innovated the music in
from hellenic period to byzantine period...
now sadly greek music
is known as middle eastern music to people because misconception of
westerners who contacted greek music from arab empire and greek people
are discredited from making the 'greek music'...
