Ayoub is a popular rhythm in Arabic music in 2/4 time. This is quite an aggressive and exciting rhythm, with a driving energy that leaves little room for excessive niceties or ornamentation. As you can tell by listening to its default setting, this is typically a meter played at a generally fast tempo. In this beat, the “doum” of the drum is played on the downbeats 1 and 2 with the “teks” of the drum played on the last 1/16th note of the 1 beat (i.e. the “uh” count right before the 2 downbeat) and on the “and” 1/16th note on the 2 beat. Listen to the sample beat to play along and familiarize yourself.
