Ready to get immersed in a full-on cultural experience?

The Rhythm Hut and Coomba are proud to present a day of Middle Eastern culture!

MIDDLE EASTERN PERCUSSION WORKSHOP

The Middle East has been a melting pot of Civilizations and Empires for over 12,000 years. Its Music has developed into some of the most infectious, exotic, authentic, and recognizable sounds that we have on this planet.


It is used to celebrate a myriad of cultures, nations and ethnicity that make up this extremely complex part of the world.

During these workshops we will delve into some of the more popular rhythms from the Turkish, Middle Eastern and Arabic percussion styles.

Focus will be on:

How to produce the variety of tones needed to play the rhythms
Establishing primary rhythms
Variations on these primary rhythms
Techniques to improve improvisation
At the end of the workshop there will be a group performance where students will be
encouraged to perform what they have learnt.
The Teacher:

Coomba has been playing Darbuka/ Middle Eastern Tabla for over 25 years.
He has a B A (mus) and has taught at Primary, Secondary and Tertiary levels in Australia.
Coomba studied Darbuka/Middle Eastern Tabla both in Australia and overseas.
Coomba learnt his skills in Middle eastern percussion through Tarek Sawires (Egypt/Aust) and Hakan Kaya (Turkey).
When: May 22nd from 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Price: $25

Followed by COOMBA ALL STARS BAND

Coomba has teamed up with Rendra Freestone (Bass), Tim Bradley (Kit) and Youssend Sawires (Darabuka) in a new project bringing the old world sonic architecture of Near East thought and Aryavarta musical philosophies into the stylings of modern culture.

Creating a sonic landscape, rich in texture and design, the music speaks a unique and complex language through the medium of Persian Santur and Darabuka (Middle Eastern Drum) while the Bass and Drums hold it down in the engine room.

The music is a collection of thoughts and promises inspired by the wandering path of travelled experiences that have been gathered up during life and spread across an aural spectrum.

When: May 22nd from 7:30pm to 11:00pm

Price $25
