Title: What is the meaning of the word sombaty?
Post by: darbukadon on April 30, 2015, 09:08:23 AM
Hey Guys
Can someone tell me what is the source of the word "Sombaty" ?
I know that there is sombaty darbuka type but what is the meaning of the word sombaty?
Is it on Arabic?

Any ideas?  :-[

To be honest even I am not exactly aware of the meaning as we often just talk about different type of Darbuka and such stuff, but we hardly talk about the meaning of these words. It does look like an Arabic word, so I guess only a senior can help us in this.
