Even if I am living in Central Europe, my wife is from Peru. This fact few years ago draw my attention to congas, so I bought a mid class set of congas and learned to play. Basic strikes through Youtube instruction videos but as it got better later I learned some of the rhythms using my ear. Slowly and steady, with no hurry. It's not for gigs or public but more for "my soul" instead. I learned also to setup the membrane heads, etc.

In practical Kawala and Ney are indeed two very similar instruments! You are correct about the holes, but the main difference - I think - is the sound. Although the kawala and the ney sound almost the same, if you listen closely, the kawala sounds a bit more "heavy" or "soulful", if you know what I mean, as opposed to a ney.

Riq, Mazhar, bendir, Tar... Lover / Re: How to play an open dum on a riq!

By born a riq fan. I have yet to learn to play classical style well. However, I do play cabaret style, and I can tell you it takes a little practice to hit the tek with the left hand and dum with the fore finger. It helps to have a frame that is small enough for your hand to reach around. I can almost hit the rim with my right #3 as fast as both #3 fingers classical style, anyway. It's also much louder and works better loud in the band I'm in. I don't get much call to play the classical way at the moment.

Hi everyone,
I have recently bought a frame drum in Turkey. I originally thought it was a bendir but I'm pretty sure it's a tar since it has no snare gut.
I have scoured the internet and found no info on tuning pitches. This thing is a 16" goat skin tar and I have tuned it to a D, [D2 I think]. Does anything know anything about tuning range for this kind of drum and if it's OK to tune it to a D, or even an E.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't really know where to turn.

Thanks in advance.
