For 40+ years, Tahya has been engaged in studying & teaching traditional Middle and Far Eastern sacred and secular rhythms and dance leading to her role in re-emerging the Systrum™. Lecture notes are attributed to personal research as well as research conducted and shared by Tahya’s guru, Mimi Janislawski.  Along the way Tahya discovered parallels to Layne Redmond's research on the frame drum which has common roots in the Ancient Mediterranean World.
