Raquy Danziger Darbuka Basics Workshop

Darbuka Basics

Raquy Danziger is an internationally acclaimed musician, artist, teacher and composer based in Jaffa. Considered to be one of the foremost experts and virtuosos on the oriental goblet drum known as the darbuka, Raquy is renowned for her electrifying performances. Through her concerts, compositions, and teaching methodology, Raquy has made a significant contribution toward elevating the darbuka from a humble folk drum to a shining solo instrument fit for a concert hall. With a mission to introduce the darbuka to people all over the world, Raquy has inspired a new generation of players.

In this day-long workshop, learn how to play the joyful Middle Eastern goblet drum from the beginning! Suitable for both total beginners and those who already play and want to reinforce the basics of modern Turkish techniques.

We will learn:

You are welcome to bring any darbuka with the rounded rim, but the Alexandria style dumbek is recommended.
