Riqq solo in classical style


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I've been practicing very hard these last weeks on playing the riqq in "classical" or "closed" style. Much harder than open or "cabaret" style. This is a one-take solo.

Posted more to give a sign of life, than for critical appraisal.....

raf
Maybe they call it Raf where you live? It seems the riqq is sometimes called Daf, but that name is also used for frame drums without jingles. And a dumbek is sometimes called darbuka or tabla....

Thanks for listening.

Riqq or daf
tomaytoes, tomahtoes, let's just be friends. This is very cool. Have you been taking lessons lately or did you learn in Calcutta? Interesting how the rhythms become almost melodic. Thanks.

Very good,
Nice to see you're alive :) I'm afraid my online presence has been very sparse for the last year. Anyway - really good, and it's nice to hear this. I've been listening to some other players on youtube and elsewhere. i know this was called riq in Egypt, and daf by some Palestinian friends, Anyway, good sounds coming out of that tambourine (I'm American:)

fluid
is all i can say. You can almost hear yourself being poured into the riqq. Liquid Vic. Also you have my deep admiration for posting a one take improvisational piece as good as this.

I can hear
many sound variations. Very regional. Are you planning to sample?

Sampling
The idea has occurred to me. I guess the main problem is that I don't know how to incorporate those quick rolls. You can not cut them up into pieces, so you'd have to include them as one sample, but they are synced to the speed of the music. I've made EXS sample sets before, but I'm not sure if that's possible.

Cool track Vic
nice work on the fast rolls and changing of the ring and jingle effect. The frame drum is ancient and varied as you know. I'll have to look this one up.

Classical style vs Cabaret style
is a head scratcher; I have much to learn.
Great sounding instrument nevertheless; money (and time) well spent.

I'm always
interested in exotic rhythms and listening to your skin pounding sounds is fascinating. It would be a cool and instructional to hear this in what you call open/cabaret style.
Cheers,
Charlie
