Concert Band, Grade 2
Rihla, or "journey," is a piece based out of Middle Eastern Muslim culture. The piece is centered around two main rhythmic motifs, and the Eb double harmonic scale (also known as the Arabic Scale). Rihla was written as a small effort to raise awareness about Muslim culture. The piece is primarily focused on American Muslims, and the "journey" that many are currently undertaking as they try to find their place, physically and spiritually, in the United States.
