Raquy's Drumming Retreats- A life changing experience

Raquy and Rami drumming retreats have been happening in Upstate NY for over 16 years.

Now Raquy offers dumbek retreats in many different places – upstate NY, Cappadocia, Turkey and of course in her new Darbuka Ofis in downtown Istanbul!

Students come from all over the world to learn the amazing Turkish Split Hand technique from Raquy and many of the retreats feature her teacher, master Turkish darbuka player Bunyamin Olguncan and other special guests including Glen Velez, Abbos Kosimov, Haig Manoukian, Hamdi Akatai, and Shane Shanahan.

The retreats offer workshops in composition, soloing, accompaniment, riq, frame drum, and even yoga and meditation.  Each retreat culminates in a performance featuring the retreat participants.

Drummers of all levels are welcome, from professional players to those just beginning their drumming journey.
