Desert Drums offers the most popular rhythm in the Arabian region called “Khebety” commonly used in Saudi Arabia Khebety is very rich of variations and instruments, we used up to 16 bounced tracks to record some of the styles and it take some times more than 30 players to perform a single Khebety live track.
