Desert Rhythms in PETRA: Lost City of Stone

Gatineau, Quebec, June 9, 2006 — Let the rhythms of the derbeke, a Middle-Eastern hand drum, set the mood for a visit to PETRA: Lost City of Stone, at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Come in and enjoy a visit of our newest exhibition while Camil Yazbek performs in the Byzantine section of the exhibition. After each performance, Camil will answer questions about his music.
