Intro to Doumbek & Middle Eastern Rhythms
Middle School Auditorium Stage -- 7:00pm to 7:50pm Saturday April 13 TB
The doumbek and its cousins are the most popular hand drums of the Middle East. In this workshop, you'll learn how to hold the drum, how to make the basic sounds and how to play some of the exciting rhythms that are common to a wide range of Arabic music. No prior experience is required, but if you have your own drum, bring it along. There will be a limited number of loaner drums available on a first-come basis.
