Whether you have recently decided to play finger cymbals or have stacks of CDs/DVDs on the subject gathering dust, you will love this CD because…it’s fun. Ling Shien Bell’s perspective of being a musician, teacher and dancer, along with fully instrumented percussion tracks from Helm, make learning enjoyable. The variety of rhythms, as well as the different speeds, create an atmosphere that is additionally perfect for working on dance moves or practicing songs instrumentally. Raqset al Sajat is perfect for both American Tribal Style and soloists.

The 24-page booklet explains how to step to these patterns and play sajat at the same time: in English, French, Spanish, and Italian. Helm has included two musical pieces, Mon Amant de St. Jean and a traditional Afghan song which are examples of 3/4 and 6/8 rhythms. Click on a title to listen.
