 Re: modes commonly used in Greek or Balkan folk music
Author: Katrina

Here's a wiki on the Turkish Classical type of mode. Turkish Classical music is somewhat different from Balkan and Roma music, but there is a definite influence to Balkan & Roma from the Turkish side (due to 500 years of occupation!).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Makam

There are more and more sites with intros to makams every day. The most commonly-used one in my personal experience is called hijaz (sometimes spelled "hejaz" or "hicaz"), but there are quite a few others as well. Frequently they use what we'd call quarter-tones as well.
