______________________________________________
Raquy Danziger is a celebrated performer, teacher and composer known worldwide for her expertise on the dumbek, the Middle-eastern hand drum. Hailing from unlikely Western roots, Raquy has distinguished herself as a unique phenomenon and earned a place of renown in the genre. In demand on several continents, she has collaborated and performed with several of the most famous Middle Eastern drummers in the world.

Now based in Istanbul, Turkey; Raquy specializes in a style know as the Turkish Split Hand technique. Her study, practice, and perfection of this technique with her teacher Bunyamin Olguncan and other master Turkish drummers has helped her realize a mission: to incorporate what she has learned into her original music and share it with audiences and students world wide through performances, workshops and instructional materials.

In addition to the dumbek, Raquy also plays the twelve-string Kemenche Tarhu, a rare and exotic bowed instrument designed after the Iranian spike fiddle. She currently studies the kemenche with Iranian kemenche master Arlsan Hazreti in Istanbul. Raquy has composed many melodic pieces for the kemenche, which she plays in her concerts and which can be heard in her albums. She is currently compiling a book of her melodic compositions.
