Middle-Eastern drumming sensation Raquy and the Cavemen are a duo of virtuoso drummers / multi-instrumentalists who bring new energy to the mystical rhythms of the Middle East.

Raquy Danziger is a world renowned virtuoso on the dumbek (Middle-Eastern hand drum), expressing her love of Middle Eastern music with the inspiration she absorbed in her travels. Liron Peleed has had a rich background as an incredible, world-touring hard rock drummer. Together they've created a fresh new sound, bringing out the best of both genres.

Raquy and the Cavemen switch between energetic drumming compositions and intoxicating melodic pieces. Utilizing a variety of unusual instruments including the Kemenche (an ancestor of the violin), Dumset (Middle Eastern drumset) and Mongolian Throat singing (see full instrument descriptions below), Raquy and the Cavemen's huge sound and mind-blowing show leaves listeners transported, uplifted and full of joy.
