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.
