About Darbuka

Darbuka: The Heart of the Rhythm

Traditionally, darbukas have bodies made of metal or ceramic, with different systems for stretching and decorating the drumhead. A variety of tones and rhythmic patterns are achieved through different playing techniques.

Darbukas come in various sizes and designs, each offering its own unique sound and characteristics. Smaller darbukas produce louder sounds, while larger ones create deeper, bass tones.

The darbuka is an essential instrument in Turkish and Arabic music, with each culture having its own distinctive style and tuning system. Traditional Turkish darbukas, for example, often feature a “tuned outside the circle” system achieved through screws attached to the hoop. This allows the player to achieve the desired tone and sound.
