ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On this hand drum CD, T. Roy clearly demonstrates how to play 30 of the most popular Middle Eastern Rhythms used in music and dance today. His "say it / play it" approach makes learning these ancient rhythms simple and fun. Included in the inset of this CD are the written and spoken phrases for each rhythm. The "cheat-sheet" inset, depicting each rhythm in plain-sentence, spoken verse (not musical notation or some strange code), along with the spoken-word only track of ALL the rhythms (for ease of memorization in the car etc.), are by themselves worth the price of this CD.

Simply put, this project is a "must have" for all serious hand drummers and dancers.

A drummer practically since birth, T. Roy plays the drum-set and hand drums of all sorts. He performs and records with various musicians, artists, and dancers in almost every style of music.

Excellent learning tool
This CD is the best way I have found to learn Middle Eastern drumming rhythms. Learning the spoken patterns really helps me remember them.

Varda

Great CD
This CD is wonderful! With it...learning Middle-Eastern drumming is a breeze!

This cd is such a help for my drumming!
I was taught only six beats on my drum by a friend before finding this cd. Now, I'll be able to teach him a thing or two! T. Roy is an excellent drummer and teacher, and the quality of the cd is wonderful.

Good Stuff
T-roy did a great job on this instructional CD. I've played with the guy, so I can say that he's also a great kit drummer too! Feel the pulse?

Love the CD
I love this CD, I'm a beginner and it really is helping me learn to play the djembe. If you love playing the djembe this cd is for you. It is good for more advanced players.

There are a lot of rhythm ID cds out there, and I'm shocked that more of them don't use the spoken dum-tek breakdown. As a dancer, being able to not just recognize the rhythms but be able to speak/think the dums and teks along with the music is a godsend. This CD has a great selection of rhythms spanning many types of middle eastern music: not just belly dance music, but music for folk and line dancing. Even so, it is absolutely worth buying just for the spoken word track.

My only complaint is that the drum is much louder than the voice, so I have to keep adjusting the volume on my ipod.
