How to Play Bendir by Zakaria Yousefi


In stock

Bendir is played under different names and forms in Asian, African and European countries. Bendir’s appearance is similar to the Dayereh and daf. From our point of view, not only is it different in shape and appearance, but it also has different performance techniques, and the reason for distinguishing it from similar instruments is more in terms of its performance form and playing techniques.

How to Play Bendir

The Book “How to Play Bendir” is written by Zakaria Yousefi. The bendir is a traditional instrument that is played throughout North Africa, as well as in Sufi ceremonies; it was played, too, in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. In Turkish, the word bendir means “a big hand frame drum”. The bandir often has a snare stretched across the head, which gives the tone a buzzing quality when the drum is struck with the fingers or palm. The drum is played in a vertical position. One holds the drum by looping the thumb of the non-dominant hand through a hole in the frame. Similar frame drums include the tar of Egypt and the bodhrán of Ireland. Unlike the bendir, the tar does not have a snare on the back of the frame, and the bodhrán is played with a beater.
