Tabla Dubb #9

Hassan Khan
2003

Khan mixes the music he has created out of the intersection between the tabla and electronica to video loops shot and edited to accompany that music. Tabla Dubb is an attempt at fashioning a public media that uses a foundational element in popular Egyptian musical culture (the tabla), within the context of a performance based using media such as music and video, while refusing to engage in the reductionist discussions around the "traditional and contemporary" imposed and continuously promoted by official culture and the discourse of dominant institutions.
