Ross Daly explaining what this seminar is about
: "Zohar Fresco, apart from being one of the world's foremost percussionists is also an excellent and highly innovative educator. This combination is very rare so we consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have him as not only one our regular teachers but also as one of the major contributors to the planning of Labyrinth's courses of study. Zohar has proposed many excellent and highly original ideas that we intend to implement in the coming years. The first amongst these ideas is for a percussion (frame-drum/bendir) seminar for musicians who are not percussionists. In other words, a seminar of techniques and rhythmology for violinists, lyra-players, oud-players, guitarists, ney-players etc. which is not only theoretical but which obliges them to actually play and function as percussionists for the duration of the seminar. In my opinion this is a very important experience for any musician of any genre. Through this experience one learns to understand rhythm (and music itself) in a completely new way which is of enormous significance to any aspiring or even accomplished musician and especially for those interested in composition. All that's needed are a frame drum (upper position bendir) and an open mind." Ross Daly

Zohar Fresco
born in Israel to a family of Turkish descent, Zohar Fresco began playing percussion instruments at a very young age. He swiftly became enamoured with Oriental music and began to play with older musicians who had immigrated to Israel from Arab countries.
His exceptional musical curiosity and his interest in a wide range of styles have led him to perform with many artists in Israel and abroad. At the age of twenty-one he joined Bustam Abraham . He is also a member of Ziryab Trio and of Arabandi.
A small sample of his international credits, apart from the above mentioned groups, include both recordings and performances with renowned composers Phillip Glass, Glen Velez, and Zakir Hussain. Zohar is an integral part of the recordings and worldwide performances of the internationally acclaimed singer Noa. In addition to this, he is a teacher and head of the Oriental percussion department at the Jerusalem Music Academy.
Zohar Fresco is a virtuoso of many percussion instruments, and his performances with the darbuka and the frame drums (such as Bendir, Riqq, and Tar) have left audiences all over the world awestruck. After years of playing these instruments, he has developed original techniques that include influences of Arabic, Indian, Persian, and Turkish music, as well as Jazz. Zohar Fresco is undoubtedly one of the best and most sought after percussionists in the world, and a rising star on the international scene.
