“Well-behaved women seldom make history” – Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
If you are a woman, and don’t play a drum, or were told or told yourself that you lacked Rhythm, Stamina, Focus and/or Self-confidence, Dar Brooklyn is For You!
If you noticed or not that most jams and stages look like a plate of meat with no Kale, Dar Brooklyn is For You! If you do or don’t know where Algeria is, Dar Brooklyn is For You! If you are or aren’t of North-African, Middle-Eastern or South-Asian (MENASA) descent, Dar Brooklyn is For You! Whether you do or don’t have Muslim and/or MENASA girlfriends, Dar Brooklyn is For You!
Dar Brooklyn: Darbuka for Her! is a series of traditional Algerian Darbuka (goblet drum) workshops for women beginners in Brooklyn, taught by Algerian-Tunisian Berber drummer and cultural activist Dr. Jihene Serkhane, in collaboration with Folklorist Nicole Macotsis. Jihene’s passion and mission is to create opportunities for women of Middle Eastern, North African and South-Asian descent to value and share their culture, while educating, empowering and connecting women of all backgrounds in Brooklyn and beyond. She studies under Master drummer Amar Chaoui
