Percussion Friends, together with Veysel Dzhesur, will on this day provide educational percussion workshops with a focus on the percussion instruments from Turkey. Young and old, experienced and inexperienced, anyone may join in to experience the joy of playing percussion and learn about the music from Turkey and other parts of the world.
