Workshop: Arab Rhythm and Drumming with Karim Nagi
460 Turner Street NW
All drummers are welcome. Students may bring any type of Arabic or world percussion drum, as long as the instrument can make at least two different sounds. Karim Nagi will teach several famous Arabic rhythms. These rhythms will come from various regions of the Arab world, including Egypt, Iraq, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and Syria. The students will later link the rhythms into a composition that can be performed. This class will not only teach rhythm and style, but also how the drummers can function in a group and create percussive songs together.
Participants in this workshop may also perform in the Moss Arts Center's Salaam: Exploring Muslim Cultures Performance on Saturday, March 17, 2018, at 8:00 p.m. if they are interested in doing so.
Nagi, a native Egyptian drummer, DJ, composer, and folk dancer, is the creator of Turbo Tabla and has released four internationally distributed CDs of his unique brand of Arab house/electronica using acoustic instruments. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is part of the Moss Arts Center project SALAAM: Exploring Muslim Cultures and is made possible by a grant from the Association of Performing Arts Professionals; Building Bridges: Arts, Culture, and Identity, a component of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation; and the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art
