About the facilitator: 

Elizabeth Nott studied Ethnomusicology at SOAS focusing mainly on Middle Eastern percussion. She has since developed her technique and understanding through participating at various drumming workshops and performing with many bands and artist such as KARAMA (Moroccan Jazz), Khyam Allami (Oud/Composer), Maya Youssef (Kanun/Composer), Olcay Bayir (Turkish singer) and many more. She’s performed for the BBC Radio 1 and 3, Holocoust Memorial 2015, Linbury Theatre and depped for Marat/Sade Royal Shakespeare Company in 2011.

Moreover, Elizabeth attended a two year course of Dalcroze Method in London (2012-2014) which focuses on teaching music through movement and improvisation. This method is combined with indian syllabic rhythms called “sulkatu” and others of her own to enhance sense of pulse, coordination and rhythm which can then be transferred in the playing of the instrument.
