For those of you who won't be in Brazil in July...

Ever fancied trying out some Egyptian dance? No, us neither, but we're coming round to the idea now we know that Egyptian Tabla legend Hossam Ramzy, and his wife Serena will be hosting classical Egyptian Dance Workshops at Dance Attic Studios, 386 Northend Road, Fulham, London, SW6 1LY. The Workshops take place on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 July between 12-6pm.

This is your opportunity to learn from expert instructors how to move to this unique style of music to the soundtrack of Hossam's album's El Amar and Sabla Tolo I.

I'm MusicRadar's eCommerce Editor. In addition to testing the latest music gear, with a particular focus on electronic drums, it's my job to manage the 300+ buyer's guides on MusicRadar and help musicians find the right gear for them at the best prices. I dabble with guitar, but my main instrument is the drums, which I have been playing for 24 years. I've been a part of the music gear industry for 20 years, including 7 years as Editor of the UK's best-selling drum magazine Rhythm, and 5 years as a freelance music writer, during which time I worked with the world's biggest instrument brands including Roland, Boss, Laney and Natal.
