Darbuka Drumming Workshop
April 23 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
This workshop with master percussionist Atif Badria aims to teach students how to incorporate two different rhythms at the same speed. It will also focus on how to go back to the main rhythm while applying a technique. Students will also be introduced to some Muwashahat rhythms.
It also serves as a wonderful introduction to not only darbuka playing but to Middle Eastern music as a whole. Darbuka is considered the backbone of Middle Eastern music, and this is a great way to explore some of its many rhythms.
This is a fun workshop with a simple approach to make it easy for students to absorb rhythms and techniques. It is also a great way to meet other drummers and get a taste of this unique drum.
Suitable for beginners & intermediate levels of all ages.
Fee: $35 – pay at door
(inclusive of morning tea and a delicious light lunch)
