Doumbek Instruction Books, CDs and DVDs

Doumbek Instruction Books, CDs and DVDs. The majority of our doumbek instructional materials are by Mary Ellen Donald. McDonald has been involved in Middle Eastern music as a dance student and a musician since the late 1960's, and is known by many as the "Guru of finger cymbal playing." Mary Ellen studied dance with Jamila Salimpour, and drum and tambourine with Vince Delgado, Tony Lammam, and various Arab drummers. She has written, produced and published several books and tapes on Middle Eastern music. Since the 1970's she has performed on albums by Magda Helmy, Gallal Kutub, Yusel Mostafa, and Light Rain, and on the soundtrack ABC-TV series, "Young Indiana Jones". She continues to be in high demand as a musician, teacher, and organizer of events. Her youthful vitality and highly developed sensitivity to music may be partially attributed to her being legally blind.
