Reasons for Rhythm

27/03/2017

When certain music play, you just want to tap your feet.

When a favourite oldie comes along, it’s a hum-with-it moment if you don’t recall the words.

Then once in a while, there is that one song, full of beat, timing, emphases in the right place, lyrics oh-so-apt… and you just can’t sit still anymore.

That is the reason why I took up the tambourine. It’s not just a percussion instrument. The various taps, sounds, gestures and movements mean something. So when I can’t sit still anymore, when my vocals can’t do justice to the song, when the inside of me says “MORE!”

Some Sundays you will find me at the back of the hall, feet trying to keep in time. Please stay a little distance from me as my hand and arm gestures are usually B I G. Haha!
