The riq (also spelled riqq or rik) is a type of tambourine used as a traditional instrument in Arabic music. It is an important instrument in both folk and classical music throughout the Arabic-speaking world. It traditionally has a wooden frame, jingles, and a thin, translucent head made of fish or goat skin (or, more recently, a synthetic material).

A frame drum is a drum that has a drumhead width greater than its depth. Usually the single drumhead is made of rawhide or man-made materials. This particular one is Egyptian, also known as the Daf or Duff.

Don't let the 75 bpm signature fool you, this tambourine is working hard and doing double time as well. This is four measures of an energetic groove that can be incorporated in an exotic cinematic soundscape, chill out music, lounge, or belly dancing music.
