Mini-session of Riqq with Olivier Bussières
The riqq is a thousand-year-old instrument found throughout the Middle East that is part of the frame drum family. In its traditional form, it is made with a fish skin and a wooden frame, but in the late 20th century, the instrument became increasingly popular around the world and today there are many modern versions of the instrument that allow for diverse playing. The riqq is both an accompaniment instrument, as well as a solo instrument that can demonstrate great versatility and virtuosity.
