Darbuka camps?
« on: March 30, 2015, 05:29:54 AM »
Has anyone ever been on one of those drumming camps, where you simply lay the darbuka from morning 'till evening? Are there any available in Europe? I have read about a drumming camp in California but I am in Europe (Italy) so I was wondering if anyone knows any such destinations.

I don't know of any darbuka camp retreats in Europe, sorry! Most of the ones I hear about are in the US, and if you make a quick google search (which I assume you did), you'll see most of them are in the US.. I've never been to one though, but it sounds like a fun idea.

Darbuka camps (or any music related camps, for that matter) can be described in one word only: AWESOME!
Haven't been on one, couldn't afford it and now I don't have the time anymore... but they really are a fun place to be!

If you're really passionate about this, why not just visit the US? :) Or other parts of Europe, if it comes easier for you.
There are Drumming Retreats in Cappadocia, Turkey and even in Istanbul, would you be interested in traveling there?

^ That's true, my mistake!
Can I ask, what are the costs involved when attending a camp retreat? Spinny said he couldn't afford going, I'm just curious!

I can answer that. Some costs can go up to $80 - $100 a day, which is why I couldn't afford it in the past. Further more, the cost for a darbuka camp can go up to $500 for like, 5 days, which for some can be quite expensive. But, I have to say, if you're seriously into it, it's worth it!

I donít think there are many available like that because now a dayís not many people prefer using this, itís a classic instrument and very few are master at it, so there are very less camps for it. I am not too bad, but still itís great to be part of such camp to improve myself!
