DumTek is a Middle Eastern rhythm generator for learning new rhythms, or practicing ones you already know. It's also great for belly dancers to get a solid rhythm to learn new moves.

Middle Eastern music has a different feel than western music, and a standard metronome doesn't always work well. Having something to drum along with can really help lock into the feel of an unusual pattern.

DumTek knows about several popular Middle Eastern rhythms, such as Ayyuub, Karatchi, Maqsum, Sayyadii, Bolero, Masmoudi, Chiftiteli, Malfouf, and many others. Future releases will provide additional rhythms as well as a method to enter new ones and hear them played.

The name DumTek comes from two of the three basic sounds a Dumbek makes: Dum, Tek, and Kah. The audio samples are from a drum owned by the author.

Spelling of these rhythms is a common topic of debate in the US drumming groups. I will standardize as best I can on the accepted spellings, once they are standardized.
