Princess Farhana


Extreme Taxim with Princess Farhana

Sunday July 16, 2017

One of the juiciest aspects of Arabic music is a taxim – a soulful improvisation by a single instrument riffing up and down the Arabic maqam or scale. This workshop focuses on understanding the unique structure for taxim as well chiftetelli, a Greco-Turkish rhythm commonly associated with taxim pieces. We'll explore the emotional texture of each musical interlude as well as the technique associated with it. You'll learn movements and combinations perfectly suited for traditional Oriental taxim and chiftetelli pieces: several types of undulations, layered shimmies, and unusual variations on camels and figure eights. You'll also grasp the fundamentals for beautiful abdominal technique, like belly rolls and flutters.

Please bring a veil.

$45 by midnight June 30 • $55 until midnight July 15 • $60 door
