This is the music theme of an Arabian TV series, I would really appreaciate comments on all aspects of the performance.

Nice music - have you learned it or are you playing by ear? I'm envious! Try to use the pedal to cover up the leaps in the music so there are no 'hiccups'.
I play for my own amazement... :piano;

Some aspects of the music/ tone is good, and has a natural feel to it.
As Gill suggests, some of your pedalling needs care, not only using legato pedalling to join the leaps, but more changes of pedal needed during changes of harmony.
On occasions, your phrasing needs care - there seems to be an accent on the 4th beat of the bar, and the melody 'dips' in and out of tone and projection. Your left hand accompaniment is OK.
If you have written this yourself, I may suggest you start the melody 'solo' then develop it later into octaves/ RH chords.... keeping the top notes projected.

Maybe your piano needs tuning aswell? .... a few octaves didn't sound quite right :)

Steady performance, but not mind blowing just yet....
