Safiya primarily plays doumbek, occasionally tar, riq, zils, and the
odd olive oil can. Khafif constantly challenges and inspires her to
learn more and play better, through practice, performance, and study.
Safiya is also an artist and researcher. She created the image of the
Simurgh from a medieval painting of the mystical bird,
and she does most of the
artwork for Khafif's promotional materials.
Along with practicing
Safiya is currently busy
with commissions for
bellydance art, and
is also putting together
a CD of clip art for
musicians and dancers.
Art prints and original paintings
are available through Khafif.
