Bongos & Tambora ( Tabla) in Yemeni Music

Postby Isaac » Sun Apr 06, 2008 6:57 pm

This is the rhythmic dance music from Yemen -
the style is called "Laheji" from the city of Lahej,
a fruit growing belt in southern Yemen.
They've absorbed a lot of African influences over a long period.
There are many ways to play it just like in latin music.
There are ususually at least 2 or 3 drummers, but here I'm combining
some parts. This was from a performance last weekend
in NYC.
