ZARB

The beautiful, melodic sounds of the Zarb are unlike any other drum. It is an ancient persian goblet shaped drum, made from Walnut or Mulberry wood, and covered with a goat skin which is glued in place.

In the 20th century Teherani revolutionised the Zarb, forming a school of percussion, and making many changes to traditional Zarb drumming, so much so that it has gone from a rural instrument to art music.

Iran
In the days of the Persian empire the Zarb - also known as the tombak - came second to the frame drum (Daf), which was favoured at court, and formed part of the traditional music ensemble. The Zarb preferred by travelling musicians, and farmers, who drummed at festivals.

Only in the 20th century has the Zarb come into it's own, from a simple rhythmic accompaniment to a performance in itself.

The Zarb is characterised by melodic rhythms, with the performer displaying his skill with improvisations - playing not only the rhythm, but also the solo and the melody.

The Zarb is also notable for the rhythmic roll, which is different to usual drumrolls.

  






Tama Techniquea

Tama / Talking drum
The Talking drum is played with hand and stick, the stick being in your strong hand, the drum held under your other arm, squeeszed against the leg or body, with that hand on the skin to create hand-stick combinations, as well as varying the pitch by squeezing the strings.
