T29 Oriental Jam Session
Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space
5 Day Course (Saturday to Wednesday)
Want to learn more about oriental music? Tarab offer an oriental "play-along session": Kurdish dance tunes, Ottoman melodies, Balkan rhythms - a variety of colourful melodies, easy to learn and fun to play. The course is open to all instruments: fiddles, flutes and accordions welcome. Special regard will naturally be paid to harps - how can you jam along on your clarsach and make it sound like a çeng (the oriental harp of 18th century)?
