Rami Tabla is back in Portland, Maine, for a workshop on Mideastern rhythms and technique at Bright Star World Dance.
Enjoy a small group session with the fun-tastic Rami! In this class, students will explore and refine techniques, sounds, and riffs on the drum using Arabic, Turkish, and regional rhythms of Upper Egypt/Nubian/Sudanese tradition.
Level is open, but we may start basic and work rhythms into a group solo piece with improvisation. If there is an interest we can cover basic split hand technique and exercises.
Darbuka (aka tabla or doumbek) welcome. Frame drum or riq welcome. We have a few drums available to borrow, please let us know when you register if you'll need one.
Intended for: beginning to experienced students of Mideast percussion - some previous study is helpful but not required.
