Hamsa Vol. 02 - Arabic Percussion

EarthMoments presents Hamsa Vol. 02 - Arabic Percussion - a collection of Oriental percussion and grooves from distant corners of the Middle East, North Africa, and Arabic musical traditions.


Extolled for its rhythmic complexity and rich diversity, Middle Eastern percussive traditions feature a variety of hand drums that form the mainstay of the practice -included in the bundle are the Dumbek, the Darbuka, and the Riq.

The bundle offers producers a broad spectrum of rhythmic patterns to choose from, traversing a range of traditional styles - from the fast Malfuf rhythm to the hypnotic Tsifteteli, the folk Baladi style to the vibrant Karachi rhythms of modern Egyptian and North African music.
