San Diego | Darbuka Split Hand Workshop
Sunday, December 10th, 2017
4:30 PM
In this darbuka/doumbek workshop Raquy Danziger will teach you the basics of the Turkish Split Hand Technique as well as incorporating Middle Eastern rhythm patterns in your drumming. The Turkish Split Hand Technique is a darbuka style that has emerged in Turkey in the last 20 years. 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. Raquy will explain the basics of this incredible technique - hand positions, great exercises - and we will play some cool Turkish rhythms. This is an ALL-LEVELS workshop. A darbuka or dumbek is recommended but any hand drummer is welcome to attend.
