Ah yes, I hear this now!!  You encouraged me to stop and really listen and I am grateful for that.  Actually, now that I listen I here a quite complex arrangement - yes, as you stated I hear after the “intro” (we’ll call it that) the fast Maqsum and then the slow Beledi.  But after that I hear the slow Beledi turn into a slow Maqsum.

Then after a dancer’s break I am hearing a rhythm I don’t know the name of at about the 2:07 mark - it goes: 
1***2***3***4***
D**T-*T*D***T***
I need to know the name of this rhythm (4 beat Malfouf ??)

Then at about the 2:27 mark I am hearing a Saiidi, which at times alternates with the above rhythm I noted above until the end of the performance - which at this point alternates with two Doums sometimes in the middle.

So yes, I find this arrangement to be pretty complex!  Also, very nice to listen to and watch.  It is very helpful to here the Duff (?) players holding just the main rhythm skeletons which in end really drives the music and keeps it all glued together.  That player’s role, while remaining the simplest, just may be the most important.  I’m thinking maybe I need to invest in a dohola ;) :D

Did I get close on my findings?  I am curious now - lol!!

(Edit - the above rhythm diagram isn’t quite lining up after posting, sorry)

So are you saying that different rhythm patterns will never be played in the same tune, even if they are the same time signature?  I used the example of Beledi and Maqsum because they are so similar.
But you have your answer here in the video, listen:
At start there's something with three heavy Doums 6 times, then you have a change in temp and it's 8 times Maqsum changing to a slower Baladi which is framing the solo part...

(... and I found something unexpected I wonder you might hear it too ...)

Many thanks ... the topic isn't  full yet.

(Here my "never" is that same of driving school, saying "Never brake inside turns, do it before!!!")
 ;)

... but we've moved forward with your response:

The approach we have to solve next is: "Never ever...?!"

I very much enjoyed watching and listening to this - thanks for sharing!  It was nice to hear and detect familiar rhythm in the performance :)

This is a great explanation!  I do understand the point you are wanting to get across.... mostly.  When I wrote alternating the Doums and Teks, I was not meaning at random but rather alternating the actual rhythms in their correct form.  So are you saying that different rhythm patterns will never be played in the same tune, even if they are the same time signature?  I used the example of Beledi and Maqsum because they are so similar.  I thought I read on the internet (or maybe it was a video) that players will sometimes mix different rhythms of the same beat to change the timbre of the tune.  Surely it is known that there is a lot of false information on the internet, and I would much rather trust an actual traditional player over something I read online.
