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'm a certified advanced TaKeTiNa teacher. I began to train with the founders, Reinhard and Cornelia Flatischler in 1998 and continue to do so. 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. More recently, my explorations have included West African dundun, Cuban and Congolese congas, dumbek, and frame drum.
