Reda's Drum: A top 3 Pick

Here is a live version of Track 3, Reda's Drum on our 2015 debut CD "Dansa".  The original composition is by Reda Darwish.  Lots of layered finger cymbal patterns and layered EVERYTHING in this arrangement.  We're playing both Suhaila and Jamila Salimour finger cymbals for a multi-tonal effect.  We highly recommend these finger cymbals for everything form training, practice, performing and recording.  Check them out at

This performance was at the 2014 Art of the Belly Festival in Ocean City, Maryland.  We'll be performing there again Saturday, March 19, 2016.  Hope to see you there!
