Purchase This Album:
Present ensembles consist of several tanbur players all playing in unison and in recent years a bass INS_tanbur has been added for a fuller sound. The percussion accompaniment is usually provided by the INS_daf, a large frame drum , an instrument long associated with Sufi orders such as the Qaderiyya of Kurdistan. The daf was added to INS_tanbur ensembles to ensure a mystical essence and rhythmic intensity to the music. The musicians occasionally sing along with the lead vocalist to create haal, a mystical atmosphere and deep emotional state.
