"I just took my first online class through Facebook with Raquy and it was incredibly helpful! I have been playing darbuka for a few years (mostly self-taught) and this is helping me jump up to the next level! The lesson was at a great pace, while also a bit challenging. I left with helpful drills that I can use to get better. Thanks, so much Raquy!"

Hi, I'm Raquy and welcome to my Darbuka School!

Playing the darbuka is the love of my life.

Since I discovered this drum over 20 years ago, I've devoted myself to it in every aspect - practicing, performing, teaching, composing, even decorating my own drums! I have experience playing in traditional Middle Eastern ensembles, accompanying belly dance and my current projects features the darbuka as a shining solo instrument fit for a concert hall.

In the beginning of my darbuka journey I played traditional Arabic style. Then 10 years ago I saw what was happening in Turkey with this new "split hand" technique. I made my first pilgrimage to Istanbul to learn from the masters. I ended up moving to this magical city and opening the Darbuka Ofis in downtown Istanbul where you can still find me training daily with my Hocam, Bunyamin Olguncan and other Turkish drumming masters.

I'm passionate about teaching darbuka. I have devoted students all over the world who are now performing and teaching themselves. I have traveled far and wide, spreading joy and excitement for darbuka. I have developed an innovative teaching system, using an easily understood notation key which many darbuka players these days are using.

I'm thrilled to be able to present my teachings in this elegant platform. I love the fact that this is a living school that I can constantly update with the latest stuff.

May the darbuka bring you joy, inspiration and magical experiences as it has for me!
