This remarkable calligraphy drawing reflects the artist’s inspiration by the Arabic music and poetry. Akil Ahmad decided to build this stunning maqam Hijaz to make us spot an incredible tune that every person holds. This tune is the definition of the sound of calling out, the sound of the desire, and the sound of reaching out.
Akil Ahmad builds each maqam on a scale and carries a tradition that defines its habitual phrases, important notes, melodic development, and modulation. He presents a type of drawing that is the definition of inspiration for music and Arabic poetry.
For Akil Ahmad, maqam is the captured moments turned by the movement and visual language. With his maqams, Akil takes us on a journey full of sounds and emotions.
