INFO

Galata Rhythm House is a centre of rhythm where in Mısırlı Ahmet conveys his 30 years of musical accumulation and the darbouka technique he has developed to young rhythmists. Galata Rhythm House; the name of the opportunity to work with the best darbouka player in the world. Besides the rich ethnic rhythms of our country and the world, the countless rhythms produced by Mısırlı Ahmet are practised in three different groups divided according to their levels. There are many darbouka artists who think they know Mısırlı Ahmet’s technique and even those who attempt to teach them. Although it is pleasing to see that Mısırlı Ahmet’s technique, the most supreme darbouka technique that has been developed until this day, is being adopted by darbouka artists; unfortunately at the wrong hands this can also cause the degeneration of the technique. This is the exact reason why the Galata Rhythm House is the only address for darbouka players of the world in terms of working together with the Master Mısırlı Ahmet, of grasping his technique directly with the help of its creator.
