La Derbouka, by Philippe Vigreux - Book
This work, halfway between an instruction book and a rhythm directory, is a best-seller among french-language books on the matter. Although it does not include any video or audio material, this book is the work of a goblet-drum enthusiast as well as an Arabic civilization specialist.
The rich, well-written texts lead us onto the paths of a very widespread instrument in North Africa and the Middle-East.
Philippe Vigreux is a musicologist specialized in arabic cultures, a percussionist and a translator of arabic authors. He presents with this book, a successful attempt at restoring a knowledge that is usually transmitted orally.
The book divides into 8 chapters that release plenty of information gathered by the author during his many travels in this region of the world.
Suitable for beginners and initiates alike, this work is the perfect companion for the "Drâbkî" (Darbuka player) and has become a reference for specialists.
