Gio Israel Middle East Essentials Percussion Sample Pack
The Middle East Essentials series by Gio Israel set the goal of capturing the most diverse, high-quality, and unique musical material. Making ancient music, sounds and instruments accessible through state of the art sound sampling.
Drums have been beaten through the Middle East since the dawn of Music. In Ritual, ceremony for recreational use and in battle. For this pack we gathered the fundamental Middle Eastern percussive instruments – darbuka, riq (the Middle Eastern tambourine), frame drums (bendir, perssian daf), dahola (clay darbuka), davul, tombak (aka zarb). We offer the range of the classical Arabic rhythms in a variety of BPMs as well as some contemporary mixed beats.
With over 20 years of travel, Gio has been collecting rituals, sounds, and practices from around the world. Our label set the goal of tapping into ancient traditional music with state of the art recording standards & production. We seek the masters, some of the world’s hidden musical geniuses, we give a stage to their sounds, access to a window to the roots of the music we all play and produce.
