The darbuka is a goblet shaped hand drum used mostly in Turkish, Arabic, Assyrian, Persian, Balkan, Greek, Armenian and Azeri music. Goblet drums have many names according to location and language. Darbuka is the the Turkish name.

There are two main sounds produced by the goblet drum. The first is called the "doum" and is a deep bass sound produced by striking the head near the center. The second is called the "tek" and is the higher pitched sound produced by hitting near the edge of the head.

This application has 8 darbuka sound effects consisting of a mix of "doum" and "tek" sounds.

You can play your iPod music in the background while using this application and accompany the song.

For best sound quality, connect your iPhone/iPod Touch to external speakers or headphones.
