Darbuka Workshops - Basic and Intermediate in LA

Darbuka Turkish Split Hand Basics
2:30 - 3:45

The Turkish Split Hand Technique is a darbuka style that has appeared in Turkey in the last 20 years. The drummers split the hand into two, like in Indian tabla playing, attaining incredible speed and dexterity. Raquy has lived in Istanbul for the past several years learning this style and practicing with master drummers. In this workshop Raquy will explain the basics of this incredible technique - hand positions, great exercises and we will play some cool Turkish rhythms. A darbuka or dumbek is recommended but any hand drummer is welcome to attend.
