The Anvil Experience is coming to Philly on Friday at the Trocadero. For those of you who don't know, the Anvil Experience is where you get to see that new rock-doc called Anvil! The Story of Anvil (which has been called the real life This Is Spinal Tap) and then the band performs a short set immediately following. My friends saw this in NYC and said it was the best thing ever.


tickets are still available here.

In this workshop, you will learn the proper hand/finger techniques to produce clean beautiful sounds from your doumbek – a Middle Eastern goblet shaped drum. You will learn how to play several traditional Middle Eastern rhythms as well as how to switch between them. This workshop is also fantastic for dancers who want to educate themselves about the basic rhythms. Bring a drum and one to loan a friend.

You know a bunch of rhythms...now what? Let's get "Beyond Baladi". You will learn practical rhythm combinations useful for playing songs and making your drum circle more fun.
