The Turning - Jerry Leake

THE TURNING

The Turning is an African rhythm played on the atsimevu master drum of the Ewe people of Ghana, repeated during the warrior drama "Agbekor." It describes the motion of dancers who perform a graceful turn as the rhythm is played. The Turning also serves as a metaphor for cultivating new instrument combinations and ideas.
