About Raquy

The darbuka has taken me all over the world, from the great opera houses from Egypt, Siberia, Japan, Mexico and beyond! I’ve gotten to share the stage with some of the greatest drumming stars today. My goal is to uplift and inspire people by making the darbuka accessible and appealing globally. I believe that music is the best way to break down boundaries and to bring people together.

I currently run a Darbuka Ofis in Istanbul.  It is a beautiful space filled with darbukas where you can practice day and night.  Many of the greatest Turkish drummers come to the Ofis to train on a regular basis.  The doors are always open to drummers from around the world who can witness this incredible scene, drink Turkish chai and join the jam.  

The Ofis is a kind of Darbuka Laboratory where new ideas are constantly born.  I collect all of the material , translate it break it down and share it with darbuka players around the globe.

With the support I get from Patreon I can keep and maintain the Darbuka Ofis in Istanbul, the source of this style, and eventually expand to other cities in the world.

When I reach this goal I will be able to upgrade the Istanbul Darbuka Ofis.
