Arabic instruments: the tambourine, rebec, doumbek, and oud

Originally uploaded by Muddyshoes
The Egyptians play the tambourine faster and in more varied ways than I've ever heard in the US. They also make tambourines in many more sizes - large and small - than we know.

The doumbek is a goblet-shaped drum typical of the Mid East.
