Thanks to our Tehran correspondent and drum brother Peyman Nasehpour..
Dojo Persian drumming section is incomparable; Peyman

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

related; for more on the specific instruments, please visit the
