Please help us populate this page by sending your mid-eastern or northern african website link to stu at rhythmweb..

Thanks to our Tehran correspondent and drum brother Peyman Nasehpour..

The Drum Dojo Persian drumming section is incomparable; Peyman and Paul Marshall put in some very hard work in 2003 on that section..great work, boys..

for Turkish style drumming, we recommend our friend Numan Elyer, an exceptionally strong UK based percussionist.

stu's note: I was fortunate to meet Peyman during the late spring of 2001. He continues to tirelessly promote his music on the World Wide Web, as a moderator of the Goblet Drumming Group and the Indian Tabla group at Yahoo, and an active member of the FrameDrummer group as well...links to his works are at right. Thanks Peyman..Keep it up!
