Indigenous based percussion ensembles bring together different instrument types layered in interlocking rhythms, linking the same rhythms in brain and body. When we are in motion, synchronization of body rhythms entrains brain rhythms of mind and music experiences, whether musician, dancer or spectator.
— David Hale, from recent musical and cultural studies.
