Also known as zils, zills, sagat (and many other names), finger cymbals are a percussive musical instrument from the idiophone family. Quite a number of interesting sounds can be evoked from the finger cymbals. Here, Morgan plays three basic finger cymbal sounds in an improvised composition she created based on tabla and doumbek rhythms and riffs.

Morgan is also studying music theory at Portland Community College and continues her studies in various music techniques and theory related to Middle Eastern and Middle Eastern inspired music with various talented musicians in the Pacific Northwest.
