Mm Mm Monday – Improvised Zill Jam with Jamila and Suhaila!

posted in: finger cymbals, MmMmMonday | 0

Oh finger cymbals, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways!

I so adore these simple metal disks, because there is so much musical possibility held in such a simple form factor. The rhythms that move me to dance also move me to play, to sway, to bop, to jam. That instinct is so reflected back at me in this awesome clip from Rakkasah 2005. The grandmama of American bellydance, Jamila, and her iconic daughter Suhaila take the stage to show us how it’s done.
