The SOAS DAF society aims to teach, promote and perform the daf (Kurdish frame drum) and mystic and traditional rhythms from Asia minor to India. We plan to have weekly meetings, classes and rehearsals in order to teach the instrument to all and collaborate with other bands at SOAS. We are also going to make a choir to sing together with the daf players.  We plan to perform in other cities and invite musicians from other universities to perform with us at SOAS as well. By the end of year, we will have the SOAS daf band, which will contribute to creativity, potentials and fun of SOAS student life.
