How this way of melodic development is strongly connected with Flamenco

In what form do we find Maqam/ Makam and Byzantine Modes in Flamenco

free improvisation (taqasim – taksim)

No knowledge of makam system is necessary to attend this workshop…Since practice is more important than theory it is strongly suggested whoever is interested in this workshop to bring their either equally tempered or microtonal…string or wind instrument or just…tune up your vocal chords!!
