What's the reason of lack of interest in youngsters?
« on: May 20, 2015, 04:45:17 AM »
My grandfather was a decent Darbuka player and thatís I find it so interesting, but I feel that almost 90% youngsters are simply not interested in it, so I feel like a lone person and even learning for me was so difficult, so why is so less interest in it? Especially youngsters.

I don't know what the real reason is, but I would guess that maybe it's because western/English music is becoming more popular these days. Personally, I'm a half-Lebanese who was born and raised in Canada, but I like Arabic music much more, so I'm one of the people trying to keep the interest in durbakke music alive :)
