David Two Hawk started studying Middle Eastern percussion soon after the new millenium began, first on darbuka and then adding riqq and frame drum. He joined Helm soon after, enabling a much fuller and diversified texture to the percussion.
David is also an accomplished artist, drawing on his background as a Native American. Examples of his artwork can be found on his web site . He has also done portrait studies of several members of FatChanceBellyDance®. While no definitive research has surfaced, David has never denied, as some scholars insist, that the Apache nation is actually a "lost tribe" of the Ottoman Empire.
