Composition[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts, "A Day in Agrabah" is approximately two minutes and twenty-three seconds. In Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, the piece is two minutes and twenty-four seconds long. In Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, the piece is two minutes and seventeen seconds. For Kingdom Hearts II, the piece is reduced to one minute and fifty-one seconds. For the HD remake of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, the piece is two minutes and forty-seven seconds long. Regardless of the game, the piece has a time signature of 4/4, and a tempo of 122 beats per minute.

For instrumentation, each version uses the same instruments, though for games not in the HD remakes, some voices are covered through electronic means- such as synthesizer. In general, the instrumentation includes: a strings section- violin, cello, and stringed bass, cymbals, tambourine, shaker, bongos, guitar, electric bass, and hand clapping. Additional instruments, unique and primarily used in traditional Middle Eastern music include the qanun, ney, and derbake.

A musical exoticism is used for this piece, evoking a Middle Eastern-type environment through the use of traditional Middle Eastern instruments, melodic keys, and rhythms. Throughout the piece is a music composition technique called "syncopation," in which emphasis is placed on the weaker (or "off") beats in rhythm. This syncopation can be heard in the electric bass guitar. The use of a sixteenth note triplet, closely resembling other musical embellishments, is also apparent throughout the piece, primarily in the strings section.

With the exception of Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, the piece starts with a triplet pickup measure in the strings. While some instruments will play the shorter or "moving" rhythms, like eighth and sixteenth notes, other instruments, such as the higher voiced strings- namely the violin- instead prefer the longer, tied rhythmic values. The increased and varied instrumentation in the percussion section helps create a unique atmosphere. In Kingdom Hearts II and its HD counterpart, the tone relaxes slightly, creating the same Middle Eastern environment, but in a much calmer fashion. In this version, the percussion section does not play as dominate of a role, allowing the transferring melody between stringed and flute instruments to lead.
