Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Muwashshah or muwa a can mean: an Arabic poetic form, consisting of a multi-lined strophic verse poem written in classical Arabic, usually consisting of five stanzas, alternating with a refrain with a running rhyme. It was customary to open with one or two lines which matched the second part of the poem in rhyme and meter; in North Africa poets ignore the strict rules of Arabic meter while the poets in the East follow them; or a secular musical genre using muwa a texts as lyrics. This tradition can take two forms: the wa la of Aleppo and the Andalusi nubah of the western part of the Arab world.show more
