Turkish 9/8 rhythms for tabla players

Beginning with a refresher on tabla technique, the aim of this workshop is to introduce you to three rhythms in a 9 beat cycle. We will get familiar with playing in 9 and look at several variations to enable you to play these rhythms fluently.

This workshop will also give you the tools to join Meilyn and myself in her workshop, '9/8 Rhythm for Drum Solo'. We will play the rhythms as a group; learn how to play as a supporting drummer to a lead tabla player and accompany the dancers in the workshop.

Open level. A few spare tablas will be available, but please bring your own if you have one.

If you don’t have a tabla, I will also have duffs available to play.
