The Mawwal (plural Mawawil) is a non-metric vocal improvisation on a colloquial poetry text of 4 to 7 lines. It can be sung with an instrumental accompaniment (usually a qanun or oud) or without, and is used as a means to demonstrate the singer's virtuosity. The singer has complete freedom to modulate to different maqamat. During a mawwal the accompanying musicians follow the singer's lead, and summarize each phrase after the singer has performed it (called tarjama, literally translation). The mawwal is often preceded by a doulab or a short taqsim to introduce the maqam.
