LISTEN to the report on NPR: Rhythm in music is about timing — when notes start and stop. And now scientists say they’ve found a curious pattern that’s common to musical rhythm. It’s a pattern also found in nature.
My name is Deborah Masterson; I am the caretaker of the ‘Awapuhi Labyrinth on the Big Island of Hawai‘i. 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. But these days I am into painting!

Deborah, i am trying to find articles on drumming, rythms and the brain. Can you help me?
Aloha Colin, I am not up on the latest research on this, but if you Google “research benefits drumming” or “drumming brain development” you will find plenty of food for thought. Good luck!
