This application will teach you how to play Arabic rhythms on the ‘goblet drum’.
The ‘goblet drum’ is known by many different names: chalice drum, darbuka, debuka, Kratom, doumbek, dumbec, dumbeg, dumbelek, toumperleki, tablah.
The rhythms presented come from across the Arab world and have a deep and rich tradition.
The lessons presented in the application have been developed by Joseph Tayoun over the many years he has taught adults and children. Joseph has found that learning the rhythms in small ‘phrases’ helps speed the absorption of the rhythms. He has discovered that students who master a rhythm before mastering the technique enjoy playing, practicing and discovering new rhythms far more.
