Selon la description de l'auteur, l'accordage du mode Rast se faisait en tiers de ton - et non en quarts de ton comme l'aura ratifié un siècle plus tard le Congrès du Caire. Cet accordage est reproduit ici.

Accordage Villoteau, mode Rast en Ré: Fa et Do sont haussés d'un tiers de ton. A noter que dans cet accordage, la note Rast = Ré.

A dance-friendly up-tempo number that has also been sung for children. This version follows the form of Mahmoud Shokoukou's performance, in these two videos: https://youtu.be/7he01TchTAw and https://youtu.be/XJyURWWzQg4?t=46s.

The original tune is performed with a quarter-tone tuning, and if I'm not mistaken, uses the Suznak maqam on the Jiharkah/Girkah (F) tonic. The corresponding scale is:

F G A-1/2-flat Bb C Db E F

For ease of illustration and learning, I've rounded the A-1/2-flat to a semitone, and I found that Ab sounds like the least worst substitute. The tune is then played in the scale of F Harmonic minor, also known as maqam Nahawand on Jiharkah (F):

F G Ab Bb C Db E F
