Ka, Doum, Tak and Malfuf

All these exotic sounds of Ka, Doum and Tak refer to different ways of striking a frame drum to create the magic of music. We tried those with various degrees of success at our First and Second Meeting.

At our Second meeting we have discovered another, “brushing” sound, and also made an attempt at a Middle-Eastern rhythm called Malfuf, which goes simply like that: Doum-Tiki, Ka-Tiki, Ka-Tik. As for Malfuf, we will continue learning it at subsequent meetings.

And this video by Layne Redmond will help you refresh and practice your basic strokes in the sitting position, which we find easier at this point than the upright position.
