Welcome to Whole Person Drumming!

Zorina Wolf writes:
Whole Person Drumming® was developed from the two major rhythmic influences in my life: Baba Olatunji and the TaKeTiNa rhythm method.

Baba's curriculum is joyous, connecting us to our earth-based roots-- including drum, song, and dance.

The TaKeTiNa methodology allows us to feel and experience rhythm directly in the body-- using the body as the instrument. 

Merging these two teachings can give us a deepened experience of connection to ourselves and others through drumming and movement. 

Whole Person Drumming® book and DVD is available! Here's an opportunity to study with Zorina whever you are!
