Get a Drum and a Belly Dancer on your iPhone! What about a pair of finger cymbals too?! Tap on the Drum or the Finger Cymbals and the Belly Dancer will dance with the beat!

Our dancer is real and awesome! Go to to know more about her and see her bio, photos, class infos and even request her to come dance in your next event!

This application comes with 10 different drum beats and 2 finger cymbal sounds. You can customize which area of the drum/cymbals play which sound using the preferences page.

Here is how the default configuration works: tap on the center of the Drum, and you will get the base (or "Doum") sound. The upper left corner of the drum will play a "Roll" and the three other corners will play 3 different "Tak" sounds giving you 5 different beats.

The 2 finger cymbals in the bottom will play 2 different sounds giving a nice rhythm when played consecutively.

Touch the dancer for random voice effects and the lips at the top of the screen for a zaghroota (ululation sound).

You can switch from the Tabla Drum to the Digital Pad Tabla using the preferences to have access to all beats at the same time.

The Tabla (also known as Arabic drum, darbukkah, darbouka or dumbak) is a single headed hand drum found in most Arab music ensembles.

For best sound quality, connect your iPhone/iPod touch to external speakers or headphones.

You can play your iPod music in the background while using this application and accompany the song!

Fun, but latency makes this hard to play (v1.0)


The sounds are nice enough, and it is fun once you figure out how to make it work for you. But doing complicated rhythms is difficult and takes time to get used to. Tapping out well-spaced notes isn't a problem, but don't expect to do complicated 16th-note ethnic patterns while keeping good tempo.

Samples on headphones are nice, being able to hear the resonant bass of the "doom" helps the effect. When using the "finger roll" sound, try using two 16th-notes before hitting a quarter note beat; it creates a better roll.

Great app... Lacking a bit though


No updates = poor rating. I can't imagine why any dev would let such a gem of an app sit like this it needs love and updates (and RECORD).

I'd actually like to update and say that this app Is BEGGING for a record function so beats can be heard and shared. Surprising it was already
plemented since it is such a universal function with thesentypes of apps.
