The Percussion Brothers

Друзья, помните, я спрашивал, хотите ли вы более масштабный клип с нашими героями-перкуссионистами? А вы писали, что ждете и желаете увидеть.

Так вот, дождались! 💥💥💥 Подключайте наушники 🎧 и вперед, в путешествие по просторам этнической перкуссии!

Даже, когда привычный мир рушится, нельзя, чтобы останавливалось творчество. Творчество - это лекарь от любых тревог ✨. Творчество - это жизнь.

Ловите волну и подыгрывайте на столе, на теле, на инструменте 🥁. А еще лучше - танцуйте!

Я рад, что этот звездный состав так легко преодолел все пространственно-технические барьеры 🌟. Турция, Россия, Азербайджан, Таджикистан, Индия - вот страны, где собирались фрагменты этого музыкального пазла. Мы перекидывались шутками, словами дружбы, любви и уважения и это очень нас всех поддерживало 🌈. Монтировать и собирать воедино эту композицию было настоящим удовольствием! Фантазия, как видите, разыгралась неслабо 🙂

Спасибо звездам Арамбольского неба, которые меня вдохновили на этот проект. Спасибо фестивалю "Барабаны Мира", который нас всех познакомил и сдружил. Спасибо всем участникам, кто в кадре и за кадром трудился над созданием клипа.

Неважно, какая погода снаружи 🌪. Пусть внутри светит солнце! ☀️

Обязательно напишите в комментариях свои впечатления! Для исполнителей это очень важно. И делитесь радостью с другими, если вам понравилось! ☀️🙏🏻😘

Над клипом работали. ⁃ Исполнители и солисты: Беркант Чакыджи, Андрей Танзю, Ровшан Джаббар, Хайрулло Дадобоев и Адриан Брауд. ⁃ Мастеринг: Илья Кова. ⁃ Графический дизайн: Карина Ро. ⁃ Идея, музыка, видео-монтаж: Александр Остапенко.

Due to current circumstances relating to COVID-19 and to encourage a moment of social distancing to help 'flatten the curve', the owners of DanceGardenLA are working on moving classes online currently. There will be more updates forthcoming on Donavon’s Sunday classes, which normally take place from 12-1pm, and one Sunday of the month from 4:45-5:45pm. For today, the 4:45-5:45 class will be filmed and placed online, and in-person attendance will be limited to 6 people.

Tuesday Culver City classes are being postponed until April 12th, or until Donavon can figure out how to move instruction online.

Private instruction is also available online from Donavon. Iqaat encourages you to connect virtually whenever you can, by upcoming classes, support groups, art groups, or anything similar.

“The Finger Snap” is a percussive sound made with both hands, practiced in the cultures of Iran, Iraq and Eastern Mediterranean areas including Turkey. It’s usually created by placing both index fingers parallel to one another with one down lower near the first knuckle joint. The top thumb usually wraps around. To create the snapping noise, the two fingers move past each other along the medial plane, the lower one to the empty pocket of air below the higher one. In Iran it is called “bashkan.” In Turkey it’s called “parmak şıklatma.” It is also done in Iraqi culture, and you might see Iraqi dance performers or spectators do it.

Here is an example from Turkey. Thank you to Nilay Engin-Wheat mom for sharing the video! https://youtu.be/8X6dR1UcrGg

Egypt also has a version of the finger snap.

Do you know of other areas that have the two-handed finger snap? What area & what is it called?
