Tarab: Bridging Cultures Through Music

“Tarab” is a term used in Arabic culture to describe the profound emotional effect one can have while fully immersed in music. The verb itself translates to ‘a heightened sense of emotion or excitement’. The origins of Tarab trace back to Sufi traditions, Quran recitation, and religious practices. Tarab music is particularly popular in countries such as Egypt, Lebanon and Syria.

The term is not merely a descriptor, it is ingrained in cultural traditions, and reflects a belief that music can connect individuals on a deeper spiritual level.
