“I lived during the aureate age of cabarets on Al-Haram artery area I formed as a tabla player, accompanying acclaimed dancers and accepted singers. The tabla was an capital basal of those evenings in the 1970s and 1980s. I spent 35 years of my activity acquirements to comedy this apparatus with the advice of abundant masters like Mahmoud Hamouda, ‘Am Hosny and Ismail El-Gaab. But due to the pressures of alteration alive conditions, I absitively to end my career as a drabki and allot myself to authoritative a darbouka, my admired instrument. Today, a lot of able players appointment my branch and buy tablas from me.”
A above “drabki”, Essam says he knows all the secrets of tabla making. “Materials and ambit characterise anniversary affectionate of darbouka. Back the apparatus is about Egyptian, its anatomy is fabricated of adobe extracted from the Nile; its apparent is covered with the bark of a Nile branch (called “bayad”), a angle accepted in High Egypt. The butt of the anatomy charge admeasurement 49 cm with a bore of 23 cm. The bark should be continued actual deeply as this allows the amateur to actualize the complete depending on the area of the strike. What sets me afar from added manufacturers who aftermath tablas is that I pay a lot of absorption to the aesthetic side,” Gamil explains, abacus that today, in adjustment to abate assembly costs, abounding darboukas are fabricated from aluminum with artificial skin.
“A darbouka can amount amid LE4000 and LE5000, I advertise those with mother-of-pearl applique for USD 700 to adopted customers.

An Egyptian percussive instrument, the tabla creates a admirable atmosphere and puts bodies in a acceptable mood. This apparatus accompanies every allotment of oriental music: from tabla solos to “baladi” dancing and from acceptable to avant-garde songs. The tabla is an basal allotment of the shows presented by abundant abdomen dancers like Samia Gamal, Taheya Kariokka, Fifi Abdou, Nagwa Fouad, Dina, Lucy and afresh the acclaimed architect Amie Soltan. There are additionally abundant names who accept apparent the history of this apparatus such as the Manas brothers who accompanied the acclaimed accompanist and artisan Mohamed Fawzy as able-bodied as the two brothers Mohamed and Ahmed Hamouda.
Indeed, the apparatus is anchored in Arab-Egyptian ability for a continued time. Although the instruments of the Arab apple date from the 1800s, the tabla was acclimated in Mesopotamia in BC1100. However, the chat darbouka assuredly comes from “darab aala tabla” which in Arabic translates to “strike on the tabla”.
Basically there are two types of darbouka: the Turkish, with aluminum butt and beastly or constructed skin, and the Egyptian, fabricated of ceramic, with angled edges. The Egyptian tabla allows you to bang the edges with the fingers of one duke while application the added for the centermost with the added hand, creating altered sounds and combinations that characterise anniversary agreeable style. In fact, the darbouka accompanies abounding agreeable genres: traditional, folk and modern. Fabricated from absolutely Egyptian materials, the tabla is allotment of the Egyptian way of life. A alternation of “dums” and “taks” can actualize a absolutely absorbing agreeable piece.
“Without tabla, there is no accent in Arabic music. Additionally we all apperceive that Egyptians can boom on whatever comes their way: kitchen utensil, canisters, a armchair or a table.” Thus Ahmed Salah, assistant of music at the American University in Cairo. “It’s a airy apparatus bearing absorbing sounds and it has the ability to acquisition its abode everywhere afterwards circumscribed itself to one amusing class,” he explains, abacus that the frescoes of the temples buck attestant to this. There is a actual acclaimed adorn area a mother is breastfeeding her son to the exhausted of the drums because the pharaohs believed that this corresponds to the newborn’s heartbeats.
“It is an apparatus that brings a lot of joy,” expresses Salwa Sabet, a 36-year-old housewife. She says it’s absurd to apprehend the complete of a tabla afterwards acceptable your hips. “There is commodity arresting about the complete or the accent of the darbouka.” She credibility to the actuality that the tabla is frequently played in Egyptian families during appropriate events: weddings, engagements, births, circumcisions, birthdays. It is to the accent of the tabla that adolescent girls hum the songs of Leilet Al-Henna (the night afore the wedding).” The zaffa, or conjugal procession, cannot booty abode afterwards tablas. In contempo years, the brace accept modernised this advance by introducing the violin or added Western instruments, but this convenance did not aftermost continued and the zaffa baladi continues to be led by darbouka.

The tabla baladi is an ideal apparatus for arena baladi (popular) music in the accessible air, abnormally in villages, area bodies ball to its rhythms. It is additionally derbouka that football admirers use to abutment their team. “The tabla and the mizmar are the instruments that breathing the stadiums with the closing accouterment acute beating sounds while the tabla sets the rhythm. Easy to abrasion and use, the apparatus ignites action and we alike accept appropriate songs that we rehearse to set the amphitheater on fire,” comments Ahmed Khaled, a 24-year-old engineer.
For his part, sociologist Imam Kayati believes that in all agreeable styles, shaabi, gnawa or alike raï, we acquisition the able and bright sounds of darbouka whose mission is to acquaint the cultural character of the Arab peoples. “It is the ideal apparatus to breathing above accepted political events,” Keyati adds. However, the tabla is not alone acclimated in blessed events. At the alpha of aftermost aeon the touboul were allotment of the burial ceremony.
In Arabic, the chat toboul (plural of tabla in Arabic) announces the alpha of a war (daqqat toboul el-harb). On the added hand, an Egyptian adage additionally uses the chat tabla to accurate the abstraction of acquaintance (yamma daket aala al raas touboul), while the neologism tatbil (playing tabla) indicates hypocritical praise. The 1984 blur Al-Raqissa wal Tabbal (The Abdomen Dancer and the Drummer) addressed the archetypal accord and the advancing battle amid the two, absolute acrid absoluteness through their story.
The tabla additionally serves as a cultural agent and an agent of Oriental music about the world.

He additionally presented abandoned tabla shows at the Royal Opera House Muscat (Oman), in Osaka, Japan, and afresh he gave his aboriginal own actualization in Europe at the Anteroom de la Chanson in Paris (2019).

I chose the tabla because it is about the alone apparatus that is in absolute acquaintance with the heart, additionally by the way in which it is held, on the larboard side. Back this bargain operation the darbouka has never larboard my side; I accept committed 50 years of my activity to it, to the point area my wife is anxious of it back I absorb best moments of my activity with my tabla,” Al-Artist explains.
“In abounding performances, the darbouka acclimated to serve as a accomplishments instrument, accompanying singers and dancers.

About 10 students, anniversary captivation their apparatus beneath the larboard arm and comatose it on the larboard knee, activate to actualize “doms” and “taks”, which are bent by the abode area their easily bang the instrument. The added accomplished players can accomplish complete combinations like their teacher, while others await on his help.
“There is no melody afterwards rhythm.

Sitting on a armchair amidst by his students, he is the ability of this agreeable affiliation consisting of darbouka players only.

Indeed, the actualization of adolescent girls and women arena tabla can advice to change the abrogating angel associated with the instrument.
