Our knowledge of the cultural exchange in general and musical exchange in particular between Arabs and Turks and their mutual influence during the long period of Ottoman rule has grown significantly in recent years. We are today much more aware of the attestable influence of Ottoman-Turkish music theoretical literature on its Arabic counterpart. The study of practical sources reveals another interesting aspect of this mutual influence, complementing to the available biographical data of musicians and composers. However, there is a remarkable absence of case studies focusing on the dimensions of this exchange. Based on a few selected examples primarily from the 19th century, this paper will try to shed light upon the processes of appropriation/adoption of ‘foreign’ musical material and how to methodologically approach these and similar questions.
