Tribe Of Doris: Middle Eastern Rhythms

Middle Eastern Rhythms at Tribe Of Doris
Chas, an aficionado of Middle Eastern Rhythms and teacher at the Tribe Of Doris Intercultural Summer School, tells us about his passion for the music and why this event is such a unique educational opportunity. The music workshops at the event build towards the Berber Ewash, a traditional party where everyone gets to perform as well as enjoy the spectacle. The music is led by the talented Hassan Erraji with Jaqui Jamal encouraging the partygoers to join her in the Middle Eastern dances.
