About the tune

This tune comes from the Tel Aviv Band and was introduced at the TNM 2011. It is not the easiest to play but sounds really cool!

Breaks

  • Hafla Break/Yala break is similar to the first two counts of the tamb line.
  • Kick Back 1 Break is like the Hafla Break with alternating surdo and all-others (call-response). It is played in a loop, repeated over and over until something else is shown.
  • Break 3 is a call response over 8 counts between snare and all others.
  • Hook Break is a bit tricky. It’s call response (surdo to all-others) over 16 counts. There is a funny memoryhook: Its a banana, it’s not a pineapple. it’s not an aubergine or a pear. It’s a what, It’s a what, It’s a what, It’s a what? It’s a yellow ba-na-na. also really nice if repeated a few times.
