ABOUT JOHN

I've been playing music for 58 years.... since I was 10. What I love about TaKeTiNa, which I chanced upon 20 years ago (and have been studying intensively for 5) is how it brings together any group of people using the simplest method: the voice.... speaking rhythmic syllables (eg. "ta ke ti na"), then the feet stepping, then the hands clapping.... and finally the voice singing in response to the leader's calls. It's a graceful and flexible process in which deep integration of body-mind-spirit is possible. It's now my music of choice.... I like to call it "Bare bones Music"
