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!
Hello, I'm Marla… a Grammy-nominated musician and one of the few female frame drum specialists in the world today.
Having studied music since I was three years old, music is my first love and greatest passion! I hold a BFA & MFA in Percussion and have been fortunate to study with some of the most world-renowned, inspiring teachers and leading masters in frame drum, Indian and West African drumming.
Delighted to pass on what I’ve learned, I’ve now been teaching for over 25 years. I have seen, first-hand, the amazing power of music to help heal and bring joy. Over 15 years ago, I first started helping students online, when that kind of learning was a strange new world.
The Frame Drum Academy online is my dream child. Born in 2015, we currently have hundreds of happy students and are growing by the day!
DEEP Gratitude to my teachers, without whom I would not be where I am today!
