The Riq most played in the Middle-East. It has double jingle pairs in the frame. Riq is used to accompany classical Turkish and Arabic music, but also common in folk music from these Areas. In North-Afrika there is different version of the riq, smaller in diameter and played with a different technique. Traditionally the riq has a wooden frame and a fishskin head. Sometimes complex inlay artwork is used to decorate the frame.
We are proud to present riq made by our lovely master Orestis Moustidis.
