Rhythms played on percussion instruments such as the darbuka and doumbek translate brilliantly onto body percussion, allowing you to explore these fantastic grooves wherever and whenever you like!

Our ‘Middle Eastern and North African grooves’ workshops is based on an brilliant, creative partnership with master percussionist Yaron Engler (collaborator with choreographers Hofesh Shechter and Akram Khan).

Developed with generous funding from Arts Council England / The National Lottery.
