This week in our Levels 1, 2 and 3 Belly Dance classes we’re dancing to “Taka Doom” a drum solo by Ahmed Gibaly. You can listen here:

The instruments you hear are the tabla/darbuka drum, the riq and a mazhar frame drum. Each brings its own unique sound and that’s what guides us in our dancing!

Middle Eastern drums & instruments

Did you know that you can try out the instruments for yourself in our Beginner Percussion class? Learning to play is a truly excellent and effective way to make a stronger connection to the music – which means better dancing! Even being able to play just a few basics rhythms will help you feel the music better! Try it out!
