Framedrums (Zohar Fresco)

Zohar Izhak Fresco is known as a pioneer of the Tof Miriam, the ancient frame drum originated in the Middle East more than three thousand years ago. Fresco understood the great value and the wide musical range that exists in the tof miriam and dedicated his life to the development of a new fingering technique and a unique musical language by the name MANEGINA.

In doing so Fresco created his own drumming style and became a mentor to musicians all over the world who followed him, learned the secrets of his musical method and adapted his drumming style in their musical work.

His seminar is a Masterclass open to a number of 10 students which will be selected after a previous audition (see FAQ).
