“Dabke Masters” is a term innovated by Roshdi Alkadri, videographer and producer of all of the Zoom Tube videos including the viral facebook video that reached over 24 million views. Dabke masters are those who perfected the dance on a basic and advanced level. They have also invented their own Dabke dance moves be it Palestinian, Lebanese, Syrian, Saudi Arabian, Jordanian or Iraqi Dabke known as “Chobi”. There are many Dabke Masters in the world and we do not claim to be the only ones.
We highlight some of the best Dabke Masters here in Calgary, Canada. It was the Masters Of Dabke videos that really showcased the art of the Lebanese Dabke on youtube. Later on, we posted a 2-minute clip on October 4, 2016 on facebook, and little did we know it would go viral. It is the first Dabke video in history to go that far and we’re proud to be sharing our Dabke videos and different cultures with the world.
We have uploaded many of our own videos and we also posted many of our user’s Dabke videos on our facebook page. We invite everyone to learn about our culture that is often not shown on the mainstream media. For those who want to learn the Lebanese Dabke, we have Free beginner tutorials to get you started. If you want to master the dance, please check out our Advanced Dabke Course with Alaa and Obaida which teaches Lebanese Dabke.
