“[A] stylish ambassador for Arab Music” (The Boston Globe), Karim Nagi is a native Egyptian who performs Arabic music and folk dance. A master drummer, he was a faculty member of the New England Conservatory for five years, and now tours North America, Asia, and Europe as a teacher and performer. He specializes in hand percussion, drumming, lutes, as well as dances of Arab-speaking countries. He has released four internationally-distributed CDs under the name “Turbo Tabla,” and has authored five instructional DVDs on Arabic drumming, music for dance, and folk dances. His “Arabiqa” school program, performed at over 300 schools across America, exposes young audiences to the performing arts and culture of the Arab world.
