Rhythm identification,drum solo performance

In expert hands, the Arab hand drum – known as the dumbek, darabukka or tablah- is an amazingly versatile instrument capable of creating a wide variety of sound and timbres. There are no abler hands than those of Issam Houshan – dubbed the “Wassan Pharaoun” (Pharaoh of Rhythm) with his “magic fingers.”

Born in Damascus, Syria, Issam moved to the U.S. in 1990, became a U.S. citizen, and soon became the leading Arab drummer in the U.S. Issam has worked with an impressive list of singers, dancers, and musical groups, including with Sting for the Grammys when he performed “Desert Rose.” In 2003, Issam joined the Bellydance Superstars as solo percussionist- touring the world performing 400 concerts in 16 countries to over 1 million people. During the extensive touring, he undertook the task of training a number of dancers in drumming technique and now they join him on stage as back up. Issam has become recognized as one of the foremost teachers of the Arab drum in the world. He has released 3 music CDs and a drum solo DVD with Bellydance Superstar Sonia – ART OF THE DRUM SOLO. He is also featured on the Bellydance Superstars DVDs, LIVE IN PARIS AT THE FOLIES BERGÈRE, SOLOS FROM MONTE CARLO, and BELLYDANCE SUPERSTARS, VOL. 1.
