What indeed?

whatnextI’ve just returned from the
Bay Area and a week of immersion
in the TaKeTiNa field.

This patch of sidewalk lies
just beside the community center
where all major TaKeTiNa
trainings, workshops, and
other events have taken place
over the last ten years.
I’ve tread this path many times,
but this time it held
particular significance.

Perhaps, you, too, will find
the question intriguing.

About Deborah

My name is Deborah Masterson; I am the caretaker of the ‘Awapuhi Labyrinth. I'm also a certified advanced TaKeTiNa Rhythm teacher. My fascination with the mystery and power of rhythm was ignited when in 1988 I attended a Samulnori concert. For many years, I concentrated on Korean percussion and dance, both in Honolulu and in Korea. Over the intervening years, my explorations have included West African dundun, Afro-Cuban and Congolese congas, dumbek, frame drum, and classical Indian music.
