ABOUT THE " ZARAFAT" RHYTHM
Zarafat is a traditional Arabic rhythm that is part of a suite of longer Arabic rhythms used in old-style poetry.
Zarafat is in a 13- beat time cycle.
The rhythm is taught in a 26-beat time cycle in this training, so the student can get a better understanding of the rests in the rhythm.
Long time cycles = Entrainment. Trance. Deep Groove

ZARAFAT TRAINING BACKSTORY:
I originally recorded this training video as a PERCUSSIVE PERK for my "Rhythms of Tof Miriam" Debut CD Fundraising Campaign that ran in November/December 2019. (est. release date of my debut album is 3/27/20)
It was supposed to be one video training - but turned into a 8-Video training program. (oops!)
I decided to not only offer this to my Donors as a perk, BUT also, include it as one of my Frame Drum Academy programs!
This is a great training program, and I'd love for everyone to experience it, and that means YOU!
