The darbuka is a goblet-shaped small hand drum that is widely played in classical and folk music, especially in North Africa and Turkey. It is commonly available in Egyptian and Turkish varieties. The instrument is also known by various other names including darabukka, darbuquah, or tombak. This method presents intermediate to advanced instruction including playing positions, techniques, and rhythm exercises. Numerous photographs and diagrams aid comprehension of the material, as does the companion CD, which demonstrates all of the exercises and examples in the book. Advanced techniques covered in this text include: the up position, the finger tick, clap stroke, 3-2-3 technique, hammer technique, the slap technique, and dampen technique. The text is presented in English, French, and German.
