This electrifying show features Turkish style darbuka/dumbek drumming. The ensemble performs intricate and dazzling compositions comprised of rhythms from Turkey, Egypt, Iran and India as well as funk, samba and hip hop beats. A treat for the eyes as well as the ears, this show is carefully choreographed with many theatrical elements, some audience participation, and even a light show!
In addition to the drumming pieces, the show includes Raquy’s dreamy melodic pieces. In these songs Raquy plays the mystical 12 – stringed King Kemenche Tarhu, a futuristic version of the Persian spike fiddle accompanied by the Turkish Baglama and a tight drumming ensemble.
DÜM is thrilled to collaborate with legendary Uzbeki drummer Abbos Kosimov!
