We will study this vase shaped percussion instrument following a musical repertoire from the Maghreb, Middle-East and the Far East. The technical foundation lies upon a Turkish percussion technique (split hand), after which we will delve into a wide range of cultures and styles: from the 6/8 rhythms of the Moroccan châabi, to Indian rhythms.
The course will be accustomed to the student’s playing level, from beginners of all ages to advanced drabki’s that want to extend their technical and rhythmical possibilities.
