Karim illustrates what it means to be bi-cultural in the US.  Music, Dance, Arabic Language are featured as Karim plays Arabic, Turkish and Andalusian hand percussion, including the Egyptian Tabla (goblet drum), Riqq (tambourine), Duff (frame drum), and Segat (brass castanets). Students will have their first-lesson in the Arabic language as well as learn a three sound clapping system which allows anyone in the crowd to perform the Arabic rhythms without an instrument and a brief demonstration of Dabka Line Dancing.
