TaKeTiNa Logo
TaKeTiNa is a musical group process, developed in the early 1970’s by Austrian composer and percussionist Reinhard Flatischler, and co-developed by Cornelia Flatischler. A TaKeTiNa journey allows anyone to access their innate ability to express and embody rhythm, whether complete beginners or musically accomplished.

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-- learning with drum, song and dance.
TaKeTiNa is a method enabling us to feel rhythm directly in the body-- without an instrument. 
Together, these modalities give us an opportunity for a deepened experience of feeling connection to ourselves and others through music and movement. 

Whole Person Drumming® book and DVD have been released.
