Doumbek Advice, Tips Questions & Lessons / Re: Hand Independence techniques?
« Last post by dHuGo on May 23, 2019, 04:28:40 PM »
Hi, Willys, happy welcome.
Hand independence on Mediterranean drums in three words:
1. Play base pattern with strong hand only
2. Play ornamentation with weak hand or both (especially fast rolls)
3. Independence will increase right by the way

For your impro you may find this a good practical introduction:

Hi everyone. I'm new in the forum although I've read several posts. I live in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, and we don't have any darbuka teachers so I had to learn watching YouTube videos. I've got some advance trough almost a year practicing, but I realized that there's not many videos to learn this specifically (there is exercise videos for  piano but don't seem useful for darbuka). So I need your help with this, and my question is, Which exercises did you use to learn the hand Independence? My goal is to learn to make some improvisations and is a MUST KNOW to do so. Greetings from the the of the world!

I found the link to Mid-East Mfg on the Jasís Khafifís middle eastern rhythms web site (which is a great resource by the way and I highly recommend it).  There is a small section on where to find drums and the link to Mid-East is there:

http://www.khafif.com/rhy/

So... the way I understand it, these style drums are more of a Turkish style drum?  The style with the non rounded top and the playing portion of the skin that comes right to the edge?  Almost more of a Tonbak style?

Great replies!!!  Iím really starting to like the Mid-East more and more.

I see you posted several videos of the Emin - that looks like the drum I mentioned.  I look forward to watching the videos when Iím not pressed for time, like I am now...

I found that Emin Percussion also has a similar style with somewhat similar shape.... but at a much higher price tag :(
